Yes, you are correct, discard can't be a child of another discard  
according to the 1.2T spec or RNG. However a discard element can still be  
the target element of another discard, which is a bit different from how  
other animation elements behave. The testcase has been updated removing  
the invalid subtest.

Thank you for your thorough review,
