I thinkb085fbe2ef7fa7489903c45271ae7b7a52b0f9ab <https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/fs/udf?h=v5.1&id=b085fbe2ef7fa7489903c45271ae7b7a52b0f9ab>, deployed in 4.20,
does both of the things you want.

One case I ran across today that Windows handles, but Linux doesn't,
is write-protection via flags in the DomainIdentifier fields of the
Logical Volume Descriptor and File Set Descriptor. Linux allows
RW mount when those are marked protected, but Windows forces RO mount.
