looking at this again with fresher eyes I think the unbalancedness simply
doesn't matter. if we visualise it as a tree, then the sequence above looks
| +----> axis_discrete
i.e. the source is at the same level that axis/axis_stop are. that makes it
less unbalanced than it initially looked. and it avoids the "unknown" mess.
so I think we should leave it as-is.

yep, easy enough. added:
Only one wl_pointer.axis_source event is permitted per axis frame.
+ A wl_pointer.axis_frame event is sent for every logical axis event
+ group, even if the group only contains a single wl_pointer.axis or
+ wl_pointer.axis_stop event. In other words, a client may get the
+ sequence: axis, axis_frame, axis, axis_frame, ...
