[Videolib] D-Skins and security

I've been watching the discussion of D-Skins with great interest. Our
problem is security, not damage. We invested in an Azuradisc unit that has
made significant inroads in our replace vs repair problem, but protecting
our CDs and DVDs with cumbersome, inconvenient and space-stealing security
cases is a nightmare, and each time we are forced to purchase a new "type"
of security case, it seems to take a different access key or appliance.
This drives our circulation people nuts.

If a security sticker (of the sort people were discussing several weeks ago,
with all the inherent playback problems) were affixed to a DVD or CD and the
D-Skin were applied over it, would the vulnerability to play disruption be
lessened? Has anyone tried this?
