May I ask who told you this?

Don't remember anymore who was all involved, but it was a discussion about all
the groups we did add in the past, and the conclusion was, that it does not
make sense to have a group and groupable devices, if everybody is a member of
this group. In that case we can make them world-writeable, too.

Yes, please!

The other groups like audio, media, etc. are handled by policykit?, hal or
whatever else, and I don't understand why it should not be possible here, too.

Honestly, I have no clue how policykit works, what it can do and how it is
configured and/or it can be programmed. Who is willing to teach me this?

What we need is something, which changes the permissions of the NVIDIA devices
(/dev/nvidia* and /dev/nvidiactl) to the logged in user during login.
