 Write-protected floppy

What I heard! Try to work with write-protected floppy now don't cause system panic? I woldn't check, thank you...Many times before my box panics when I have fogrotten to check read-wtire curtain on floppy...I think fd0 driver MUST check read-write curtain before mounting and refuse to mount (or force to read-only), when curtain is open. For my pity, many developers hasn't interest to correct this bug (O, very long-stading bug, since 2.2.5 :-) ), said "Floppy is obsolete as media and non-interest". Probably, it is obsoleted. But device exist and supported. Why is it buggy?
