The other reason for using gold disks is that they are more resistant to
"disintegration".

When I worked for the Department of National Defence last I was the
point of contact between the Project and our potential suppliers of
storage products and recordable media, and spoke about this with one of
those suppliers

The problem with recordable CDs, as opposed to music CDs (for example),
is that if they are left out in direct sunlight for a long enough period
of time, they will be rendered unreadable.

I don't know if the exposure has to happen all at once, or if it can be
a cumulative effect, but the gold disks are more resistant to this type
of degradation
