Undeprecate IsOwnedX

Just a nitpick, but ownership flags ending in "Self" (i.e. "isOwnedRemotelySelf") was really confusing when I was getting started. I understand the purpose is to differentiate from hierarchal ownership, but hierarchal ownership flags already end with "InHierarchy" (i.e. "isOwnedLocallyInHierarchy") so the distinction already exists. It simply confuses newcomers searching for the proper flag.

To clear up my past confusion, my thought process went a bit like this: "isOwnedLocallySelf? What does it mean to be owned locally and owned by myself? Doesn't that just mean the same thing twice?" Like I said though, just a nitpick. Things like this itch at the back of my brain from time to time.

The naming matches unity's gameObject activeSelf and activeInHierarchy naming conventions. On its own it could be unintuitive, but in a unity context it makes sense imo

I hadn't thought about that. So then I have Unity to blame!
