As S2_6 ruledit is not able to handle effects, this can be postponed to 3.0

Currently, req_from_str() does some sanity checking of requirements when parsing them: it checks validity of ranges for requirements, and (after patch #4396) the 'survives' field.

req_from_str() should be reduced to checking the syntax of individual fields, and semantic checking of ranges vs types etc moved to rssanity.c (probably building on bug #21418).

(I think this will lose us reporting of which filename/section is at fault, but it can't be helped.)
