Indeed the sequence was 
1) End of ProDVD (May 2006)
2) Fork of cdrkit (Oct 2006)

But the release of ProDVD functionality in cdrtools
source tarballs marks exactly the point where the
fork took off:
Here you announce cdrtools-2.01.01a09 and mention CDDL.
The fork of cdrkit is based on cdrtools-2.01.01a08.

So they probably did not take your DVD code because they
assumed that it is not under GPL.

Have a nice day :)
