Can you explain what would break? Pulseaudio doesn't need/ works

The pulseaudio mailing list [1] explains:

I tend to have to kill pulseaudio to get sound working.

If my user isn't in the audio group, how do my programs access the
audio device?

The right permissions are set by logind through modifying the ACL.

$ getfacl /dev/snd/controlC3
# file: dev/snd/controlC3
# owner: root
# group: audio
user:floris:rw-   # This line makes sure I can access the device.

So the user is able to control the device.
