I'm partial to #3. It makes things much simpler if you can just eliminate
the potential forced-discard. It removes a bit of strategy, but it brings
the game to an end faster. As someone with a vested interest in seeing
Fluxx games come to an end faster (no more 1hr15min tournament games pls),
I endorse this option.

It is in the nature of poets to misuse their sources.
