You would have to reserve option names within xorriso's
command set and its -as mkisofs option set. I would then
avoid to give them a meaning in those sets.
You would also have to resolve the old collision -v.

There are further incompatibilities between old and new
grub-mkrescue by the not yet implemented old options 
Will they be re-introduced ? (Should they ? What did they do ?)

Please count 1 vote for "grub-mkiso". :))
As said, both personalities could share one body to avoid
duplication of maintainance effort.

I propose to describe the new CLI in the docs as "unambiguous"
rather than as "more elegant".

Have a nice day :)
