It's *MUCH* less stable! Look at my Pioneer DVR-110D review's results!
It's not that some models can do it well, and other models can't... it's that the normal variation within a single model will greatly throw of consistant results with 8x recording on MKM001. That doesn't mean it won't work with certain drives of certain models, but it DOES mean they can't offer it with security. Smart drive makers will limit their max burn speeds based on this, instead of giving newbies too much power. Smarter YET manufacturers will release tools that allow power users to overclock without hacking (*COUGH*BenQ*COUGH*)... although this has not happened yet for DVD±RDL media yet that I'm aware of.
It isn't *ALWAYS* about making more money you know
(although the cynic in me points that direction often as well!).
