Yes, it works this way (see /lib/udev/write_cd_rules).
I think this is the least confusing scheme *and* other distributions
work this way too so I am not sure it's a good idea to change it.
But feel free to try to persuade me...

BTW, now I see that it's a removable device. See #395962 about how to
get really persistent names. I'd like to fix this for etch, but I am
really busy with my day job right now and I have not even been able to
follow up this bug.
