I belive kernels had a problem with ISO 9660 > 2^31 or 2^32 bytes
until recently. Also, mkisofs might not be able to handle it.

Yes, UDF is the way to go, but these large filesystems do exist.
Yggdrasil recently released a two-layer DVD as an ISO 9660 filesystem;
the announcement had the kernel requirements in question.
