What Others Think

Not a good idea - should use cdparanoia for this.

this command will generate a complete ISO file, just like other tools do?

This is a bad, bad way to create an ISO image. Instead, you should be using readom(1) from the "wodim" packages. Problem with your command, is cat(1) does not provide any error correction when building the ISO. is the better way.
