	Sure... that works, but has two inconvenients, as you pointed

* You've got to have X & Nautilus installed on the server. Not a big
  deal, but better not to have them if not necessary.

* You need a way to copy files to the server. NFS may be the solution
  (let's say "put the files in this shared folder") and then open the
  "other" or "remote" Nautilus and then burn.

  	But I'd rather see "clean" remote cd burning features
implemented, mostly when the real, hard job is being done by cdrecord!
