That's not true, actually with technologies like ConsoleKit and PolicyKit
the trend is towards running more stuff as the regular user.

I'm not sure why that's the case. I do know that we explicitly do not
require root privileges for K3b, as they aren't necessary. (We also disable
the check from upstream K3b which warns if wodim is not suid root, it works
just fine without it!) Have you tried filing a bug against xcdroast?
