Limit The Use of description@type Within An Activity

Currently the schema allows for multiple use of each iati-activity/description/type within an activity. Therefore a publisher is able to specify:

<description type="1">

<narrative> ..... </narrative

</description>

<description type="1">

<narrative> ..... </narrative

</description>

However, the original intention was that all descriptions of the same type should be held in a single description field. Therefore it is proposed to amend the schema to limit the use of description@type to 1 only of each type per activity
