And I'm pretty sure it is, not just in one but two different ways.
For one all ATA attached CDROMS are ATAPI, which just means a SCSI
command set (MMC in this case) tunneled over an ATA transport. Second
libata always is a scsi low level driver, even when talking to ATA
disk, it just responds to the SCSI commands by translating them to
equivalent ATA commands or faking them up.
