In response to your comment, and other comments you sent on the discard 
element we have changed the relevant text. I have rearranged the edited 
text to resolve your issue. The section in question now states:

    An element gets discarded either when it is the target of a
    'discard' element and the value of the 'begin' attribute of this
    latter is reached or when one of its ancestors is discarded.

This now only describe when an element is dicarded.

Later in the discard element description it is clarfied that a discard 
element cna be the target of another discard element.

    The 'discard' element itself can be discarded prior to its
    activation. It could be the target of another 'discard' element.
