Default IC7 or 8 - Better to write image first?

When using instantcopy I set the DVD burner as the destination for the backup. This means that the DVD burner is being used for a substantial time (at least the activity light flashes on & off). Would I be better off setting the destination as disk image & then burn the image? My theory is that it would result in less wear for the burner as the image burn is considerably quicker although the overall time is a bit more.

Any suggestions?
