Are you sure about that? I think the point is that it is your own stuff that 
goes into the cdrom, and whether you write to it doesn't make that much of a 
difference. If it where that way, we could as well have need for a group for 
read-only floppy-access.
Perhaps there is a case I oversee where it makes sense, can you give one?
