Goal

Why is the discount applied for the "AMT. off" on targets not in the same manner (i.e discount applied on the highest priced target items) as that of using "% off" on targets?

Steps to reproduce:
1. Login to BO
2. Create a discount rule : Buy N of X get Y at a specified amount (Z) off
      Source: 80020002 ($12.99) , 40060006 ($12.99) [ All Sources] 
      Target: 42 ($7.99), 80040004($8.99), 40020002($6.99) [Any 2 Targets]
      Amount Off : $4
      Distribution : Target

3. Once the rule is active, Scan all the five Items.
4. Notice that the discount gets applied on the target items 80040004 ($8.99), 40020002 ($6.99) whereas for the rule: Buy N of X get Y at Z% off , discount gets applied on the highest priced target items.
