I prefer putting the info block on track 18, personally, which does not 
affect size.

I don't know why folks don't use it.  But, few do.

I agree it's a more complete format, but it's not used as much.  My idea 
of putting this same information on track 18 would add this information 
to the image, and has the benefit that folks could "see" if the disk 
came from an image when they use a real disk.

Yeah, I know it "corrupts" the image.  complaints to /dev/null
