Is there any reson to recommend _unsupported_ command line usage?
It works fine "out of the box" providing I want to use the burner it
chooses. Having more than one is no longer unusual, a number of systems
come with a reader and a burner these days.
cdrecord works just fine out of the box if you either _don't_ use dev= at all
or id you use the official SCSI device syntax.
As to "official," I have no doubt that you can cite some organization
which says to do things the way you do, and you have decided they do it
your way and so are official. I'm old enough to remember SCSI "back
when," and where were always four numbers, not the three you choose to
support. These were the slot number, the bus number, the device number
and the LUN number, and that was back when device number was 0..7 and
LUNs often selected 556bpi tape drives.
If it does not work this way, there is a bug in the kernel code.

It seemed like a good idea at the time
