No, regular users will not be glad if they are forced to answer a
question they have absolutely no idea about. How is a normal user going
to be able to answer the question "Do you want to be added to the 
'realtime' UNIX group" ?

If realtime is a requirement for acceptable audio experience, then
everybody needs to get it without extra questions asked. If it is not,
then why bother ?
