Okay, Andrei objected the term "checkreading", and it is indeed not

I'm not an expert on optical recording technology, but I am a native
English speaker. To me, the term "proofreading" implies checking
someone's written words for grammar, sense, and spelling. It's really
not something I would expect a computer to be able to do. If it's
officially called "defect management", why not use that term --
especially since (at least in English) it actually describes what's
really going on.
If it were my choice (which, of course, it's not) I would greatly
prefer something closer to Andre's original suggestion:
"In order to get full nominal speed on BD-RE (without the slowdown
caused by the drive's internal defect management) add
the option 'stream_recording=on'."
Thanks for listening,
