SVG12: discard begin

Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  In the
begin attribute of the discard element has a default value of "0". This
value is hardly ever useful (if the document begin is onStart the target
element would probably not appear at all and if it is onLoad it might
appear for a short period of time for which use cases are rare at best).
Please change the definition of the begin attribute to include a value
"indefinite" which is the new default value for the attribute.

The value should be there regardless of the default value to allow
reasonable scripting of the element, for example, the element might be
at the end of a chain of discard elements which might be triggered by
scripting, without the value authors would have to use some unreasonable
value like rootElement.end to achieve the same effect. As this scenario
is more common the default value should be changed aswell.
