Default Discarding/Replacing Steeds

I assume Steeds (as Items in general) can't be discarded just because. In consequence, I believe you can't replace a Steed with another, right?

Nevertheless, I read this from the FAQs:

Quote:
Q. If I tame a monster, what happens to my old Steed?
A. Same thing that happens when you replace a Steed with a new regular Steed. Discard the old one.
From my understanding, it implies Steeds can be replaced. Maybe the answer should be changed to just "You must discard the old one"? In fact, it's what the rules say about the taming skill:

Quote:
Monster Tamer: In combat on your turn, you
may tame a single monster instead of fighting it. It
becomes your new Steed. To do so, you must discard
your old Steed, if any,
plus a number of cards equal to
the Treasures on the monsterís card. That number is
your new Steedís combat bonus. You may not trade a
monster Steed, give it away, or sell it for levels.
By the way, if you are allowed to have more than one Steed somehow (Cheat cards, Centaur Race...), do you have to discard your old Steed anyway to tame a Monster? All of them if you already have more than one Steed?

I found an old thread that discusses my first question, among other things... Users don't reach any firm conclusion... But maybe it helps to find an answer. The thread is here.

I have updated that FAQ to remove the first sentence. I added a following question about how to deal with a Steed you no longer want (or cannot legally use).

A. Discard the old one(s). The tamed Steed replaces all Steeds you might have had previously.
So a Centuar Ranger may only have one tamed steed or unlimited proper steeds, but never a tamed steed AND one or more proper steeds?

The Centaur Ranger must discard all previously obtained Steeds when it tames one, but it may then add more regular Steeds after.
