Sound cards are *not* like keyboards, mice and screens.
A keyboard is only providing a service to the person typing on it
A mice is only providing a service to the person which has it in its hand

Any semi-decent speaker can provide music services to everyone in a
room, (even a different room of the one where the computer is) not
just the person in front of the computer. Time shifting means a user
can access sound devices even after his desktop session went inactive
or closed.

Printing is outputting info too. Will we limit printer access to the
active session too to get the "right" behaviour?
