Which makes me think , is there such a thing as crosstalk ( or any of it's permutations ) on a CD,or any other digital format ?  If  not , could one disc be used to store twice as much audio in a " half track " monaural mode ?  I realise that each independant channel would have to be transferred to each channel at the same time .

Letting the imagination wander a bit.
