Make 'description' field of GPS trace optional, not required

Description

'Description' field on "Upload GPS Trace" (/trace/create) page is mandatory. I don't think it's a good idea to oblige everyone to describe each walk or ride with words. I have bad literature-writing skills so I usually fill this field with garbage.

I think most tracks are pretty usable without textual description. Moreover, there's also 'tags' field making this form even more bureaucratic.

P.S. There's no indication on that page that 'Description' field is mandatory.
