[Users] Physical CDROM access

With VMware ESX, when you edit the CD device you have of course the 
option of attaching an ISO, but IIRC you also have the option of 
selecting the physical CDROM device for the Host.

There seems no way to do this with oVirt. It would be a really nice 
addition to the "Change CD" menu to have something like "/dev/cdrom". Is 
there a technical issue preventing this? Of course that would prevent VM 
migration such as HA while the CDROM device is attached, but that didn't 
stop VMware and it would be a valuable addition.
