IIRC the tolerance of xorrisofs exists because genisoimage and mkisofs show it.
It's contageous and each adoption possibly widens it.
E.g. i did not check whether genisoimage refuses on some double-dash options
but simply tolerate double-dashes with all known long options.

It is worth to mention that the zero-to-many-dash tolerance of the xorriso
native command interpreter is documented and part of the CLI.
So in live-wrapper you may prefix as many dashes as you deem good looking.

But lwr/xorriso.py of live-wrapper has no command
  -joliet on
and no
  -compliance joliet_long_paths:joliet_long_names
which is what the emulator executes when getting option -joliet-long.

Have a nice day :)
