Is there a standard use of this term?

I'd stick with CD-ROM. That, after all, is what it is. "CD" generally refers to
audio products (although some folks will think first of financial instruments).
I'd doubt there would be confusion with magneto-optical or WORM products, as
they look nothing like CD's (although CD-R does).
