I do not know if we can rely on any group ownership. The bluetooth
manager is part of the standard user session. As its geoclue plugin and
the gpsd gecolue plugin.
The issue is to avoid the need for the admin to give the user the
admin/root password (which could be worst than gpsd behing compromised
knowing it is not running as root and we would require the user to be
able to execute anything on the system to avoid it to get compromised ./
