It should be possible to burn an ISO to a CD-R with dd, because that's the normal program for writing an image file to a block device.
If the CD-ROM driver presented a writable block device interface, then dd should be able to write to it.
Perhaps I misinterpreted the original statement; I thought it was a request to enhance dd to know how to write CDs. If it's really a request to make the CD-ROM driver present a writable block device interface, and to leave dd unchanaged, then I have no fundamental opposition to it.
