Let me ask this: if discard sends a DSN, how is it meaningfully
different from reject?  Reject seems to present a strict superset of
discard functionality as you've described it (you get to tell the sender
where to go in addition to refusing the message).

I'd like discard so, say, I can ignore certain people.  I don't want to
reject their mail, I just want to ignore it.

This is very well said and I agree with it completely.   The functionality
difference seems both clear and useful to me.     Discard shouldn't be 
optional and it should silently throw away the message.
