I'm in Belgium, hence my reaction about Germany amongst others. Over here we are off course aware of this... We also have no Schedules direct, which is a pity...
The disc scenario:
Most of the time that would be ripping DVD1 & 2 & n, yes
One of the disadvantages, even if you have proper metadata, is usually you only have ONE DVD sleeve or jacket.
I guess it would be a really 'handy' feature just to be able to stamp '1' '2' etc right on top of this sleeve jpeg or whatever. I know that some people scan the disc image and use that as JPG or PNG, but I'm not very fond of this method. It's really tedious to get them properly straightened out, and mostly hard to read, since it will end up pretty small, so I'd prefer a plain simple number.
I have the same analogous idea with music - say you rip a triple CD , with something like 50 or 60 songs. They will all carry the same image...
As far as iso is concerned:
Are you suggesting we could embed the metadata (ID3 if you like) into the iso?
I guess that would be very nice. I would also 'wish' for this to be available as a cmd to add metadata to already existing iso files instead of re-ripping.
Be glad to (try) to help out on any of these :-)
