Warner engineers coming up with a triple-standard disc?

Just found something interesting while reading some online news article...

An exerpt from the article...

"Warner’s plan is to create a disc with a Blu-ray top layer that works like a two-way mirror. This should reflect just enough blue light for a Blu-ray player to read it okay. But it should also let enough light through for HD-DVD players to ignore the Blu-ray recording and find a second HD-DVD layer beneath.

An ordinary DVD recording could be put on the other side, so that conventional DVD players can read the disc as well.

Although the triple-standard disc will cost more to make, it should still be cheaper than pressing three, and shops should be pleased not to have their shelves overloaded with so many different discs."

I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't want to pay extra for the main feature on the Blu-ray layer of such a triple-standard disc, since I'd be viewing Warner movies on HD DVD.
