I believe the middle part of cdr's, and hopefully dvdr's, is slightly raised so one disc surface does not touch another - not true if you place too many into 10/20 slipboxes and screw on the top part of the case - this forces the discs ro turn and rub against one another and the dye layer normally gets very scathed.
I have 4000+ cdr's (Kodak/Mitsui/TY) stored in plastic wallets - not seen any trouble yet - and where possible, I store them upright. The time will come to archive a few hundred 80 minuter's to one high-density medium
