I would have thought the answer was "no".  Normally one would use
/usr/ports/sysutils/mkisofs to create a new ISO image containing
the modified files and burn that ISO image on CD.  However, the man
page for mount_cd9660 (in FreeBSD release 4.9) gives this example
usage of the command:

        The following command can be used to mount a Kodak Photo-CD:

                mount_cd9660 -o rw -v -s 0 /dev/cd0c /cdrom

This might be a bad example.  Neither the man page for mount_cd9660
nor the man page for mount lists "rw" as option specifiable with the
"-o" flag.  The "-w" flag (which is not an "option") is listed on the
mount man page but not on mount_cd9660 man page.  I was under the
impression that the mount_cd9660 command only mounted file systems
