Well, actually you can. On my Hardy nautilus will show:

Location: cdda://scd0/

and then proceed to list the various tracks:

Track 1.wav <size> WAV audio
Track 2.wav <size> WAV audio
Track 3.wav <size> WAV audio

Interestingly enough, on my other system (Gutsy) nautilus claims:
"cdda:///scd0/" is not a valid location
Please check the spelling and try again.
[note the 3 /// vs // in Hardy]
Even if I manually try: cdda://scd0/ in Gutsy it won't work.

So, it looks as if whatever was broken in Nautilus on Gutsy has been
fixed in Hardy.
