I agree with this change.  I support "discrete" as the initial value.
I can switch Bikeshed over to accepting either value, so there's no
change needed for specs that either omitted the line entirely (which
gives you the default "none" value) or specified a non-none value.
Only specs that currently have an explicit "Animatable: none" would
have to be changed, unless I make Bikeshed magically translate that
into the preferred default value. ^_^
