That is not true. I am pretty sure folks would be pretty pissed of if
we'd artifically create some seperation between sessions of the same
user that would allow using hw like sound cards, gps devices, frame
grabbers, webcams, mounts from one but disallow them from another.

Hardware the user has access to should be accessible to all his local
session, not just one. Of course, defaults should be bound to seats,
i.e. you probably want to use the sound card of Seat1 when you type
your stuff on Seat1. But defaults are one thing, manager daemons
something else.
