Allow subjectLineStarter and subjectLineEnder to be Empty

description

As a developer/dev ops I want to be able to send emails with the subject as the severity and not to have to remember to add a space to configuration to avoid an exception.

As per http://entlib.codeplex.com/discussions/543985 between EntLib 5 and EntLib 6 subjectLineStarter and subjectLineEnder were made mandatory. Remove the validation (revert to EntLib 5 behavior) to allow the starter and ender to be left off (and just have the email subject be the severity).

To add to the confusion, this validation is done when attempting to initialize EntLib's Logger (via Logger.SetLogWriter(new LogWriterFactory().Create())). When using the EntLib 6 configuration console to generate the entlib configuration, neither subjectLineStarter nor subjectLineEnder are indicated as manadatory in the validation.
