Your solution is very un-professional. What your solution purposes to do 
is do nothing. I think your judgment is flawed and a larger group of 
your peers need to review your judgment in this case.

burncd has been part of the system utilities included in the basic 
release since release 4.0 and cdrecord is a port. The professional 
solution is to remove burncd from the 9.0 system release and add the 
cdrecord command to the basic release as the replacement for burncd.
Then add release notes entry of the change.

You do not knowingly leave a non-working utility in the system, period, 
or not provide a included replacement for a popular utility as this one.

The alternative is to fix burncd or backout the acd0 to cd0 change from 
9.0 which may be the most desired solution because its obvious that no 
one researched the impact this change may have. This change may impact 
many ports that access cd/dvd drives for read and write access. burncd 
may be a very small worm in a large can of big worms.
