hifi: #21312 Improve positioning of assets when imported / loaded

When a new model is imported, loaded from JSON, or loaded from the marketplace, it's positioning is often confusing. For example, large models will appear on top of the avatar. JSON models or marketplace items may appear behind or to the side of the avatar.

Review our current problems, and writeup a proposed set of changes that would make the experience of loading from these three cases less confusing.

    #21312 created by PhilipRosedale Status set to Bidding.

  • Proposed:
    - Import JSON: Import in front of you/camera (depending on camera mode) at a position 2m in front, then after import adjust the position of the entities so that their bounding box is 2m in front.
    - Import model: Import in front of you/camera (depending on camera mode) at a position 2m in front, then after it's been auto-resized adjust the position of the model so that its bounding box is 2m in front of you.
    - Entities editor "create" buttons:
    - Cube, sphere, text, Web: Create in front of you such that their bounding box is 2m in front of you.
    - Zone, light, particle: Create in front of you at a distance of 2m (i.e., registration point is 2m in front of you).
    - If snap-to-grid is enabled, adjust the final import position to the nearest grid point.
