And the apps arbiter resource access just like cups arbiters
simultaneous access to a localy attached printer from local, remote and
background users.

Because audio cabling is static and audio devices are at the same stage
today as non-networked printers were two decade ago. There are systems
connected to audio devices by virtue of being near the audio devices,
and there is no 1:1 relashionship between the user sitting on the local
system in the current dekstop session and the user making use of audio
devices.

It's perfectly legitimate to have a desktop system sitting in the living
room that simultaneously plays a DVD for one user on the TV/projector
output, records analog video for another through PVR card, while a third
is connected in dekstop session and checks his mails or does some quick
browsing.
