[SVGMobile12] discard with nonexistent target

Section 5.3 states that "If the target element does not exist when the 
'discard' elment becomes active, the the 'discard' element must be 
ignored."  A strict reading of this is that the <discard> element 
remains in the DOM.

However two paragraphs later it states "If the target element did not 
exist the 'discard' element must still be removed following 
activation.", which contradicts the earlier statement.

Please resolve this contradiction in the specification.
