Well, you mean more like a disk than a CD-RW, right?

No.  UDF has nothing to do with ISO 9660.  From the specs available
at http://www.osta.org/ ...

NOTE: The disc may also include the ISO 9660 file system.  If the disc
contains both UDF and ISO 9660 file systems it shall be know as a 
"UDF Bridge" disc.  This "UDF Bridge" disc will allow playing DVD-ROM
media in computers, which may inly support ISO 9660.  As UDF computer
implementations are provided, the need for ISO 9660 will disappear,
and future disks should contain only UDF.
