Yes, that is true.  fuse is leveraged to do some magic and remotely 
mount the client USB stick on the server.

DVD drives aren't quite the same.  Take, for example, an audio CD.  You 
can't mount that and export it as a filesystem.

So the question really becomes: does LTSP even look for optical devices 
and try to remotely mount them using fuse?   I don't have an answer to 
that, but IME LTSP5 does not do this.  That said I haven't tried 
connecting a client DVD recently and then setting the group to fuse. 
Hopefully someone can chime in on that.
