I would wager it is.  From the CD-Writing HOWTO:

...let me warn you that CD-writers
want to be fed with a constant stream of data. So the process of
writing the CD image to the CD must not be interrupted or a corrupt CD
will result.

Of course, you could have a smarter CD-burner than existed at the time
of that writing.

(BTW, I don't generally make coasters, since I
use CD-RWs much more often than CD-Rs.  Coasterless bliss - plus I can
make updates to my software archives stored there.)
