Mounting a CD image, at least, should be something that a user can do.
Maybe there should be two kind of "mount" for removable devices : the standard one, allowed only to root, and a sort of "user space mount",
which is allowed to users because it is somehow isolated from kernel
and therefore its bugs are less likely to compromise the system.
Easy to say, hard to do, I expect.
