I agree that discard MUST NOT generate a NDN.

So do I. I think more strongly than other people.

The problem arises if an implementation cannot implement discard without generating a NDN.

Then it hasn't implemented discard; it has implemented reject. As far as my reading of the draft goes, reject = discard + DSN and discard = fileinto "/dev/null". The inability to implement discard without DSN is a failure to implement properly.

Randy, maybe you can explain why your implementation can't implement either reject - DSN or fileinto "/dev/null". I would like to prevent DSNs with discards at all costs.
