OK, thanks. The cdrecord "personality" is used to present a familiar
legacy syntax? Can the same result be reached using xorriso with no

OK. The distinction between writing arbitrary data (stream, file, ?) and
writing a file system hadn't crystalized well. Software can take an
action, or not, without direct evidence. To my thinking, all the examples
in https://www.gnu.org/software/xorriso/ assume an ISO 9660 filesystem.
No issue for an experienced user but a ready trap for a novice.
