If it were just a few cents to the end user, then wht not try it. However, if it a few cents to the replicator, which gets doubled to the studio, which gets doubled again at the distributor, which gets doubled again at the retailer, etc. then it wouldn't be worth it to me.
Combo discs are already too expensive. If you tell me it will cost $.50-$1.00 more for an already expensive combo disc, then I'm against using this type of label. The HD-DVD group needs to be working on ways to bring the costs of combos down, not up.
When it gets to the point where combos could drop $4-$5 and the manufacturer wants to sneak in the labels, and only drop the price $3-$4, well that is transparent to the end user, and might fly.
