Access to cd device denied for cdp

Playing a cd from the terminal using cdp, or cdplay (non-interactive),
results in the following avc in permissive mode (but the cd is allowed
to play):

Apr 26 15:09:24 CirithUngol kernel: audit(1083017364.035:0): avc:
denied  { ioctl } for  pid=10129 exe=/usr/bin/cdp path=/dev/hdc dev=hdb8
ino=66203 scontext=user_u:user_r:user_t
tcontext=system_u:object_r:fixed_disk_device_t tclass=blk_file

This is not audited in enforcing mode.. but does not work either
(program exits with "please chmod 666 /dev/cdrom as root").
/dev/cdrom is symlinked directly to /dev/hdc.

4.0K lrwxrwxrwx  1 0 0 8 Mar 29 17:26 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc
4.0K brw-rw-rw-  1 0 6 22, 0 Feb 23 13:02 /dev/hdc

Is this expected, or desired behavior?  Shouldn't a locally logged in
user be allowed access to audio cds? (perhaps should be -or is- tunable)

I'm working with policy-sources-1.11.2-13.
