Blu-ray may be a "bag of hurt" with regards to licensing and implementing technology for playback of encrypted movie discs; it would be no problem whatsoever to offer burners as a bto option.
Apple just doesn't like the technology, also because it is in competition with their itunes store, so they choose to ignore it. Again, they are making the decisions for their customers and what they have to like and want.

And isn't that also a bit the whole strategy behind the whole Mac Pro delays? "We don't really want to drop them right here and now because people will complain, especially after the "Pro debate" (people have written about the outdated tower architecture more than one year ago, way before FCPX came out) but we really don't like them anymore, they don't fit our image and the markets we want to cater to so if we just wait long enough, let them sit there without updates, new technology, with performance falling behind... less and less people are going to buy a tower, some may go for an iMac or a Macbook Pro and then, when there's really nobody buying them anymore, it makes perfect sense the drop them, announce lackluster sales, the majority will understand the reasoning and few will shed a tear".
It's pretty much the same thing we've seen in the past with the Xserve Raid, Xserves Shake etc.
When the Xserve was dropped they said "nobody's buying them". Does that mean nobody was/is buying server hardware anymore? Of course not. They just didn't buy Apple's servers. If they had been interested in those markets they would have asked why and improved their offerings.
