Re: [web-annotation] Reference to text encoding in spec perhaps not appropriate

Except that 4.2.5 Text Position Selector says

> The text MUST be normalized before counting the characters, in the 
same way as for Text Quote Selector.

So utf-8 conversion is required for the text position selector too, as
 the spec is currently written.  I'm assuming that some developers 
will want to use UTF-16 for codepoint-based counting, so perhaps the 
text should say, 'the text should be converted to a Unicode character 
encoding', instead?
