yes, but ardour will not be able to open it from the DVD. you will (for
now) have to copy it back to disk. there is already a feature request to
add support for sessions on read-only media like a DVD or CD, and its an
entirely reasonable one. the hard part is not the "backend", but the
GUI. making it clear what is going when so many operations are
impossible, or "unsafe" is not a trivial matter.
