So that's kind of a "marketing essential" then. Lacking either doesn't make the disc invalid. For homebrew discs, like Bombono targets the creation of, the list of essential features is pretty small. That's all that phrase means.

Multiple angles are not very common, and certainly not for (what I assume was) their original purpose.
