Addresses GB 57

The contents of <codecvt> are underspecified, and will take a reasonable amount of work to identify and correct all of the issues. There appears to be a general feeling that this is not the best way to address unicode transcoding in the first place, and this library component should be retired to Annex D, along side <strstream>, until a suitable replacement is standardized.

Proposed change:

Deprecate and move the whole of clause [locale.stdcvt] to Annex D.
