Add a description in the schema to planned-disbursement element

In the 2.01 changes we have added a new description to the planned-disbursement element in the schema. We propose to copy this change into version 1.05. 

It has little effect on anything other than providing better clarity, so although this is a very late stage in the upgrade cycle, we think doing this is appropriate.

The GitHub issue is: https://github.com/IATI/IATI-Schemas/issues/82

    The following description will be added:

    "The planned disbursement element should only be used to report specific planned cash transfers. These should be reported for a specific date or a meaningfully predictable period. These transactions should be reported in addition to budgets - which are typically annual breakdowns of the total activity commitment"
