Your understanding is pretty close I'd say. My reading of the document would say that as a Controller you must always wait 5.8mS after sending a Discovery packet before transmitting any other packet, including another Discovery Packet.

I'm not sure why we stated in that manner though other than to make sure there isn't any missed traffic as a result of collisions happening. Worst case, if the responders waited until right up until the end of their window to start transmitting and then you have collisions, it might be possible to miss the response and then incorrectly infer that there was nothing in that branch.
