RW Label

So I don't have to keep a paper label with the disc

It has been possible for some time now to get writable optical media with a laser-sensitive surface on the label side, so that by flipping the disc over in a LightScribe (or similar) drive, the label can be burned by the drive itself.

I propose making the label dye out of something with similar re-writable characteristics to the data dye layer so that RW discs can be re-labelled.
