In my view this is not invalid: "differently correct" recorders and also printed DVDs are common in the wild and they work on Windows, osX and "dumb" readers. And as the average user is not able to figure out a workaround, he will assume that ubuntu is broken and switch to something else.

The same argument ("we are applying the permissions") was made in 2009 for bug #10550 and ubuntu decision back then was to change the mount options (possibly only to CDs/DVDs/Blueray, this is not clear from the bug).

And let me stress again that this is indeed a regression: people used to be able to play their braindead DVDs and now they cannot.
