I guess it can be summed up into two questions :

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.
That's the open question. Do backup tools use only group disk access
for restores or do they run as root?
