There are few complaints about cdrecord and wodim with CD media.
A while ago i had a conversation with an interested person where
we sketched CD burning from a user supplied cue sheet, i.e. user
controlled SAO. It seemed mostly about translating the terminology
of e.g. cdrdao back to the MMC specs.
Well, as so often, the interested person had other things to do.

In the past i did this with afio and star archives. Meanwhile my
backups are entirely based on xorriso.
But the HFS needed for Debian GNU/Linux powerpc has to co-exist with
an ISO 9660 image that points to the same files. (Aka hybrid image.)
The boot facility of the IBM needs HFS and hands over to Debian which
then expects ISO 9660 ... if i understood it right.
The DVD video UDF is an extra primitive one with certain predefined
directory and file names. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-Video
I doubt you can get this from the read-write UDF driver of a Linux
Luckily there are no different sector formats like with CD.
On DVD and BD we only have data sectors of 2048 bytes each.
Have a nice day :)
