That is clearly going to be true.All commands for old (pre-MMC) writers.
On this, since other software writes disks, I would classify these commands as "desirable" rather than "required." Feel free to list commands you feel are necessary to the basic functionality if you can identify any.Some MMC commands needed for DVD writing, but here I do not remember the commands.
Note: I completely agree that some commands are blocked which would be desirable, but the general case, "put data on a disk" can be done without root if a standard MMC device is being used.
