sound executables permissions

 I've been wondering a little about how to set audio permissions up.
On my own machine, I've been using sound applications by simply 
chmod:ing /dev/audio and friend world usable. 

Is there any policy on how we should set up sound apps?

 Anyway, there exists a group called "audio", which owns the audio
devices. I'm little confused by the permissions of *nix:ses, so I'm
not sure on how to do things. All other audio apps are standard 
executables, but I'm not quite satisfied with that:

 Is there anything that would be lost, if we'd make sound executables
owned by audio, and just ask mainters to put audio app users in group 
audio? Or going even far and making sound apps audio sgid? Afterall, 
is there anything bad a cracker could do in a audio sgid shell?
