I think you can have CDS_XA_* CDs with a single iso9660 track, iirc
VideoCDs are an example of such cds.
I don't think "iso9660" is an appropriate string even for CDS_DATA_1 and
CDS_DATA_2, I'm pretty sure I have Mac-only CDs at work which contain a
Mac partition table, several HFS filesystems but no iso9660 filesystem.
