i am the upstream developer of libburn, libisofs, and libisoburn.

Some clarifications:

cdrskin can replace wodim for pure data CDs and pure audio CDs.
It cannot produce mixed mode CDs like CD-XA or "Video CD".
(With DVD and BD it is simply superior to wodim.)

xorriso can produce HFS+ inside ISO 9660 filesystems.
Use cases are said to be with booting medium-new Apple computers.
(Ask Vladimir Serbinenko at grub-devel mailing list for more
info. He contributed most of the HFS+ code and did the tests.)

But bootable ISOs for Debian arch powerpc need HFS (without plus).
This is not provided by xorriso.
Another topic where xorriso cannot replace genisoimage is UDF.

K3B is said to refuse on cdrskin on purpose.
The recent release 1.3.4 of cdrskin has changed its version message
on user request from
  "Cdrecord 2.01-Emulation Copyright (C) 2006-2013, see libburnia-project.org"
  "Cdrecord 2.01a27 Emulation. Copyright (C) 2006-2013, see libburnia-project.org" 
But you have to expect that future versions of K3B react on
this, unless somebody negotiates better co-existence.

Have a nice day :)
