If DVD+RW is rewritable in the manner claimed, then maybe one could just use a standard filesystem on it... although having said that I hear the discs only withstandard ~1000 rewrites, comapred to >100,000 for hard discs, floppies and DVD-RAM.
I personally use DVD-RAM for backup and a more convient alternative than CD-RW for transporting large volumes of data, mostly using standard ext3 filesystems. The inability to play DVD-RAM on my (non-extant) DVD player is not a problem for me, although the cost and difficulty of finding the media is sometimes annoying.
The claimed features of cdrecord-prodvd failed to excite me, as I have no wish to produce DVD audio or video.
