In Germany, the term "discounter" is clearly defined, but it doesn't seem this is a statement that can be shared globally. As it isn't much used either, we should probably discourage the use all together.

Concluding from their names and websites, Poundland and Poundworld are
variety stores, not discount stores. This list seem to confirm your
observation that shop=discount may not be self-explanatory globally.
Any objections if I retag Poundland and Poundworld stores as shop=variety_store?
