I'm still don't understand.  It's easy to see why one reboot is necessary, but why two?

That's just how PackageKit offline updates are implemented (not specific to discover). 

It is required, for example, to allow one to use newly installed kernels.

When Discover reports an upgrade with system implications (say a new kernel) and the user allows the upgrade (by clicking the appropriate button):
  1. Discover downloads the files for the upgrade
  2. Discover requests a reboot.  After the user allows the reboot
  3. Discover reboots the system
  4. Discover installs the new kernel (or whatever)
  5. Discover reboots the system (again)
What is the reason for the additional reboot before installing the new kernel (step 3)?
