Thanks for the details. I went to the LBS yesterday where they have the non-disc brake Topeak SuperTourist and held it up to a couple of bikes with disc brakes. Now re-reading this thread it all makes sense.
I'm not sure how common it is to have the caliper mounted inside the rear triangle. It appeared all the disc equipped bikes at this shop would need a disc specific version rack. However, I did get an email from Cube which said,
"The Mounting points are on the outside of the frame and the disc brake is on the inner side."
So it looks like I might be able to use any rack afterall.
