You can still do things that way if you have created /media/cdrom and have
an appropiate entry in fstab added manually. Currently that's what I do.
However, there is probably a better way to do this using udev rules; I just
haven't started looking into what it would take to change things from
the current behavior where cd's get mounted using a name from the label
on the CD.
