with systemd as the default init system. systemd/ logind sets the right
permissions for the sound devices [1], so I think it is unnecessary to add
somebody to the audio group. (And missing all the "fancy stuff" systemd
brings to us.)

I don't think you have explained why having the first user in the audio
group is going to be a problem?

If systemd makes that unnecessary, then that's great but adding the
first user to the said group isn't an issue as far as I can tell?


When somebody create a multiseat setup [1] all sound devices are shown
and controllable to all users.

and mice, so multiple people can login and use the same computer)
