Do you use system-wide PA or a separate PA process for each user

If the latter, then all you need to do is setup the ACLs correctly
(probably via some custom udev trickery) so that a given user is *only*
allowed to use the one USB card.

This setup will mean each user can only use one sound card by virtual of
file-system permissions and PA is designed to respect these permissions.
