During the transition period between technology formats, such from CDs to MP3s, consumers inevitably go through a period where they want 'all in one' players'.

ps: If they ever have an 'upload mp3 cd' feature, this could be used to change the contents of the memory on the go by loading up a cd full of mp3-s. The same could be used for dvd-s and smallscreen mp4 players to transfer new content without using a computer.
errr.... part 2
damn it, I'm a fool, yes ok, Constant linear velocity does mean it spins at 500 rpm over the shorter centre track and 200 rpm over the longer outer tracks (in order to cover the same distance per second) picking my self up off the floor in shame :( It did seem like it was a bit too torsionally twisted.. and yes 500 rpm is only 8rps... but still hardly any momentum whith such a light disc. Not likly to be dangerous bit youd have to rip on a table and go later. and who would want to wait an hour to rip at 1x speed... unless it did rip at 50x at 10,000 rpm then it would be dangerous, (and would no-doubt be mains powered!)
