SCR 3-1121: Move SOFTWARE object from required to optional in the CATALOG object definition

Priority: medium

Problem Summary: The definition for the CATALOG object in the PDS data dictionary includes SOFTWARE in the list of required objects. SOFTWARE should be moved to the set of optional objects. Also the lists of required and optional objects for the CATALOG object in sections A.5.3 and A.5.4 of the PDS Standards Reference need to updated to match the definition in the dictionary.
