Well, that's a thought...

Okay, I tried on my office CD player and it just backs to track 10. I
tried in a DVD player as well and it just doesn't do anything if you
backup before track 1. So, probably not... I would doubt this to be the
case with the CDs I have anyway. The ones I had earlier were old jazz
collections (things like the 'The Best Of Verve'...or something like
that) and the one I have today is Alabama/Mountain Music.

The other interesting point is that cdparanoia -Q doen't show track 0
either. It, correctly, lists the tracks as 1 to 10 with the apropriate
offsets. I'm wondering if the -B option is broken?
