So you think it's better to produce a definite coaster, as opposed to a
CD which will probably work? I don't. If you're concerned, you can
always check afterwards whether burnfree was needed. Of course you get
better CDs without burnfree being used, but that is a small problem when
compared with buying blanks by price.

According to Jörg, the feature is off by default to ensure continuity
and compatibility with <whatever I've forgotten and don't care about>.
In my opinion, not a competent reason.
