It turned out that it's hard to tell whether use::editing refers to
hardware::storage:dvd or to other tags. There could be a software used to edit
video, which also happens to have special support for reading (but not writing)

So I added the cd/dvd *-writer tags:

  diff --git a/debian-packages b/debian-packages
  index ae93288..eac0419 100644
  --- a/debian-packages
  +++ b/debian-packages

It could make sense, later on, to rename *:cd to *:cd-reader and *:dvd to
