Clarify spec for object container files

                 Key: AVRO-498
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-498
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: spec
            Reporter: Scott Banachowski

I have some proposed changes for the spec in the Object Container Files section.

The fixes are:
1) call out explicitly that when it says long, it means avro-encoded long.
2) since the implementations are serializing the metadata as an avro map, this map should
be followed by a block size of 0 (consistent with avro map encoding)
3) fix the example header schema so it passes JSONLint (it had an extra comma after the last
array value).

Number 2 above is something I'm not sure about, because I don't know if it's a compatible
change... I hope it does not break any implementations.
