[XVS 4.1] Incorrect level "iOS Community" mentioned in log files when using VS Professional license level

I'd estimate this inaccurate text is a moderate concern in terms of proper messaging because it could lead customers to think either (a) that they are not being granted the "full" VS Professional permissions or (b) that they are unintentionally violating the Community Edition terms of use.

## Regression status: regression in Cycle 7

BAD:  XamarinVS (fb9e9f3)
GOOD: XamarinVS (0dd817c)

## Steps to replicate

1. Ensure you are logged out of any Xamarin account under "Tools > Xamarin Account" in Visual Studio.

2. Open Visual Studio Professional.

3. Navigate to "Tools > Options > Xamarin > Android" (to cause the Xamarin extensions to be loaded).

## BAD Results (with (fb9e9f3))

The `*Ide.log` file (from "Help > Xamarin > Zip Logs")  _incorrectly_ mentions "iOS Community":

> Xamarin.VisualStudio.ActivationManager Information: 0 : [2016-05-11 17:06:04.0462] Read license: iOS Community

## GOOD Results (with (0dd817c))

As desired, the string "Community" never appears in the log files (because I'm using VS Professional).

## Additional version info (brief)

Visual Studio Professional 2015 Update 1
Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
