Thats true and more, when watching DVD movies the DVD disc is not
mounted, the DVD-player software is accessing the disc directly
through the device node and the same for Audio CD.

As already mention UDEV should creating the symlinks to the right
device but as has happened before for me it sometimes get messed up
when shifting place or removing the dvd-rom. The solution for me was
to remove the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules file and reboot
the computer so it's recreated.
