What does it mean to discard bounced audio?

Question

Ok so I'm trying to understand this track freezing feature from this documentation:

https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Mixing.23.html

The word "discards" has me a little concerned (right after "Unfreeze Track").  Are there any deleterious effects to freezing (bouncing) and then unfreezing (discarding), or are these operations strictly inverses of each other, like hiding and redisplaying in the "quick" versions of these commands?

"discard bounced audio" means discard bounced audio - that is the bounced audio is deleted from the audio folder (although this happens on exit of Cakewalk).  Freezing a track has no effect on the original audio file - that stays intact.  If in doubt, open the audio folder while freezing and unfreezing a track.

Ok, so the only deleterious effect is on a temporary file that was going to disappear anyway.
