In the UK at least, the price of a CD-R and a DVD+R is approximately the same,
although CD-Rs are becoming rarer in brick-and-mortar shops.  I still attempt
to use CD-R media when burning install discs, but that's only if I happen to
have some (and I don't mind the wasted space burning netinst to a 700M CD-R).

I think what I'm saying is I agree with you for my use-cases at least.
