Default Mount Rainier...a pipe dream or the future?

Microsoft backs DVD rewritable group. -February 2003

Old News....but has anyone followed Mount Rainier in products and their reviews? With major developers and vendors backing the technology, should giving serious consideration to a DVD+RW drive require that it uses this technology? While being able to write/erase/rewrite on the fly like a floppy drive is one of the core aspects of Mount Rainier, there are a number of other features, such as the supported Overburning, improved error detection, etc, which give it merit....though I'm not sure where the propoganda starts and stops.

Anyone got the inside take on this? I've google'd around a fair bit, but having a hard time finding the straight facts.

Edit: Presently I'm eyeing this unit from Benq that not only boasts Mt. Rainier support...but is also rumored to be able to be firmware updated to be able to burn dual-layer DVD's!
