It's totally up to you. Either would do the job. growisofs doesn't let
you just close the media without filling it up, because DVD-ROM
compatibility of such media would be permanently limited (see
dvd+rw-tools page for details). You either have to close first session
with -dvd-compat option or fill the media up if you've missed
-dvd-compat in first place. A.
