The standard that defines OCRW devices is still available for purchase
|from ISO/IEC.
ISO/IEC 14776-381:2000
Information technology -- Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) -- Part 
Optical Memory Card Device Commands (OMC)
This recommends strongly against making them obsolete without first 
the ISO/IEC home office.
All the best,
