I guess it can be summed up into two questions :
- Is there a need for a group to have write access to disks?
- Is there a need for a group to have read only access to disks?
If the answers are no and yes respectively, then the change makes sense.
Seems to me like it does dump-wise. And I can't find any case where someone
other than root would need raw write access to a disk device.
