ISSUE-213 (text outline): Advance notice of deprecation for textOutline [TTML.next]

http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/TT/tracker/issues/213

Raised by: Sean Hayes
On product: TTML.next

All of the major browsers have declined to implement text-outline, and as a result it is dropped from CSS3. Instead they have adopted text-shadow which is probably sufficient for our needs.

e.g. try : 
.region {
      background-color:grey;
}
p {
    color:white;
    text-shadow: 0px 0px 1px black , 0px 0px 3px black, 0px 0px 3px black;
}

I suggest we put a note in the SE to the effect that we intend to deprecate this in v.next and replace it in v-next with textShadow.
