License metadata - allow non-form-specific element help texts. (Bug #1095499)

Change the help text handling so that when a help text is not found for a
specific form/element combination, it also looks for a wildcard ANY/element
help text.

This is used by the license metadata feature to provide uniform help text for
the license fields on all forms where they appear.
