Yes, it’s a good idea.
And just as an aside, I don’t think that “EEPROM” is really the best label for that option. Yes, it is technically correct because it is saving the data to the EEPROM, but this presents a couple of minor problems…
1/ How many people know what the EEPROM is? To the author of ImgBurn: Why not pick a phrase like “remember setting” (“permanent” is another possibility, except that it’s not really “permanent” when you go easily change it to another “permanent” setting).
2/ There is a bit of “beware of the EEPROM” going around, which is perfectly legitimate when it comes to modifying it in a “raw” form, but people should also realize that the EEPROM is written to all the time, whenever you do a burn and whenever you change your region setting. In fact, when you make a Litey drive region-free, it’s modifying the EEPROM, but because LtnRPC doesn’t say anything about the EEPROM, there has never been an issue of people asking “is it safe to use LtnRPC to set the region information in the EEPROM?”
So the effect of associating “remember booktype” with “EEPROM” is that fewer people make use of what is, IMHO, a perfectly sensible option.
