Would be nice to get 13GB of unchanged miniDV footage onto one cheap disc (finally). Two or more tapes on one disc would be even nicer. A lot depends on price and availability. Right now all they're talking about is ultra-boring playback formats, like the world revolves around Hollywood. More focus on computer users (ie. common Joe) with real, everyday data archival needs would be nice. Blu-Ray certainly sounds better (on paper) for those tasks.
