Not a coder but every copy of OS X ships with Safari and I'd guess
it'll default to that if told otherwise. I'm not familiar enough with
the development side to tell you how you'd auto launch applications
the moment you pop in a CD, you might want to give the pages at
http://developer.apple.com/ or the development lists linked from
there a good shake.
Disk Images are part of MacOS X and the Open Sourced Darwin core,
DropDMG just masks the command line utilities, such as hdiutil

If I recall Apple recommend that all MacOS X software be packaged
inside a Disk Image as it saves resource forks and so on. Not a
problem if you're not using them but it's now pretty much what people
expect to see when they grab software.
