The best compatibility among DVD- recording strategies, yes. The DVD
Forum can't possibly maintain that it's best mode *ever*.

High frequency DVD+ ADIP makes it possible to reposition the laser with
adequate accuracy. Adequate enough to maintain compatibility with
DVD-ROM. This was discussed already long time ago. And as already said
implementing DVD+R SAO would *not* improve compatibility with DVD-ROM,
so there is no point to complain about lack of it. In other words single
DVD+R recording mode is more than enough. A.
