Re: [web-annotation] Base direction for annotations

It seems to me that this ticket started from a wrong example:
"text" : "<p>פעילות הבינאום, W3C</p>",
    "format" : "text/html",
    "language" : "en"
    "direction" : "rtl"
In the provided example, the language is not "en" according to my 
understanding, but hebrew, with some enghlish text (except if the 
provided hebrew text means W3C  ... for which we would have 50% en and
 50% hebrew).

I think it is dangerous to make standardization decisions starting 
from wrong examples, and proposing incomplete solutions. 
1. Probalby you want to say that W3c should be understood as "en" 
text, even if it would match any latin based language+script, but that
 doesn't change the true nature of the text!
2. The text is written in 2 languages, and 2 scripts .. and the 
proposed "base direction "change doesn't solve the problem of not 
being able to correctly represent the text. see also the analysis  I 
submitted to #213
