Fix Recommendation

On data-bearing nodes and arbiter nodes, the mongodb-enterprise-tools, mongodb-enterprise-shell and mongodb-enterprise-mongos can be removed (or not installed).

On applications servers that typically run the mongos process when connecting to a shared cluster, the only package required is the mongodb-enterprise-mongos package.
