Conversion labels shown

The conversion labels (i.e. { } ) for wikis like zhwiki is shown when editing using the VisualEditor.

Those labels should be hidden, or otherwise newbies using the editor will break them easily.

This is a mess; Parsoid currently has no support for the language variant conversion syntax in wikitext, but when it does (bug 41716) we should work on this to make it easy to set the different variants.

Sorry that we are not really ready yet for zh; I feel that this is a blocker to deployment in zh, so until it's fixed I think VisualEditor will remain in alpha opt-in deployment there for now.
