Are there any objections to these type of disks that would make their use undesirable?  Will use these exclusively unless there are objections.

So, what longevity problems do old colorless/blue/green/gold cd-r's have?  
Do I have to re-burn all my cd-r's on the new black ones or what?  I have 
priceless (to me anyway) rarities by a whole slew of bands, and I don't 
want to worry about the media they're stored on self destructing!
