Could you explain why?  The most obvious practical use would be:

$ mkisofs -r -C `burncd msinfo` -M /dev/acd0c -o new.iso goodies

Writing to stderr means this doesn't work, and you have to add 2>&1 to it.
Also the white space means you have to use extra quoting.

Are these changes intended for 4.5?  I'm hoping the small change I
proposed would be accepted into 4.5, before anybody starts using
"burncd msinfo" in practice.  I think this is sensible, even if
a much improved burncd is scheduled for 4.6.

Regardless of this, I do not intend to commit any unwelcome changes.
