True, but much of the software that uses it does not tell you that
it did. Nero (Windows) will if you turn on the option and cdrecord (*NIX)

Since the disk can't be read on old drives anyway, I'd rather have the
write fail when it happens, instead of "working", with the problem
only showing up in a log file.

It's a matter of having produced a possibly working disk versus
producing one which either will or won't.
