It is not blacklisted. If it was, `modprobe ide-cd` would probably be a
no-op(?). No, I am just saying that there is no one that loads it
automatically. Which is fine for my daily usage -- because there usually. is no
CDROM drive by default.

Where would I add that MODALIAS line?

I would actually prefer udev (or its kernel part) to recognize this
automagically. The basic kernel does it already:

pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.0
Probing IDE interface ide2...
ide2 at 0x180-0x187,0x386 on irq 3
hde: ATAPI 16X CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache
ide-cs: hde: Vpp = 0.0

You can see similar IDE probing on boot, when no cdrom.ko nor ide-cs.ko is
loaded. Couldn't udev (or its kernel part) pick that up and [generate uevents
and] decide to load cdrom.ko/ide-cd.ko?
