My preference would be to choose another adjective. “Service Discovery” is the umbrella under which the technologies are rooted. Having one of those technologies be a Discovery Proxy is unnecessarily confusing.

Locater Proxy?
Identity Proxy?
Observation Proxy?
Exploration Proxy?

Or any number of other words not being Discovery Discovery. :)
