Leatherworking mail/leather discovery

Right now im attempting to do the daily plan discovery to learn the druid agil pvp gear and I've realised there are way more plans that im forced to discover than in blacksmithing. I have a question with this now.
Why is it that we cannot choose to use scales for mail armor discoveries and leather for the leather armor discoveries?

With 2 sets of wrists and belts for almost every spec and class it seems silly to do the discovery and get 4 wrists your alts cannot use and you wasted 4 days. Can there be a better way to go about this? At least narrow down the amount of items you have a chance to discover would be helpful.

I believe this is how it worked earlier but scales cost a lot more than leather and people complained.

Some of us use the profession to make money.

Although I tend to agree that magnificence of scales should have been used to learn mail patterns, and vice versa for leather patterns, I've been done with discovery now for quite awhile.

Kind of defeats the purpose of discovery if you already know how and what type of gear you want to learn ahead of time.

The better way to go about this would be to buy the gear you need if you can't possibly wait for it.
