The cue file represents the CD-ROM TOC 
(http://www.herongyang.com/CD-DVD/CD-TOC-Where-Is-Located.html) which
is what you need to locate tracks on the CD. Without it a CD player 
wouldn't know how to seek separate audio tracks. The cue file also 
lets you do thing like split tracks into different files with 
different formats.

Yeah you can burn a bin file using CD burning software, it'll just 
give it a standard TOC that denotes one big data track, if that's even
necessary.
