Of course it should never block anything, I'm more than aware of the amount of legit CD-Rs (not that I've seen m(any) DiscIDs for such releases). But I'm quite sure a "did you burn this yourself!?" would do wonders. It's quite possible it's more work than it's worth though.
It's either that or we just forget about the entire issue as far as I can see; which admittedly would save everyone some time, at the possible cost of confusion down the road.
(Or wait, I've actually added a promo CD-R myself for an itunes-only release; God I loathe digital-only releases)
