The only 2 reasons I've had for keeping the cdrkit package in Debian

  1. hfs hybrid support in genisoimage, a topic that Thomas and I have
     spoken about in the past. Now that we no longer have powerpc in
     Debian stable and I don't have to care about making CD and DVD
     releases for it,

  2. icedax's support for extracting cd-text from audio CDs. As
     (also!) maintainer of abcde, that's a very useful feature. I'm
     not aware of anything else that supports it - suggestions
