Someone could confirm this, but I think that logic is that since CD
audio is now handled digitally and because you can set volumes on a case
by case basis, you shouldn't need to change the 'direct' volume from the
CD player.

So for example, you can play CD's from a number of applications in
Fedora and theoretically you should be able to set individual volumes
for each application that can play the CD.  Having a 'master' volume for
the CD (that would affect all these application volume levels) would
just be confusing (much like this email).
