I believe that statement belongs into the nonsensical-remark dept., thank you 
very much.

The operator group is a very convenient solution for many permission-problems 
on a very common case of FreeBSD usage: A private desktop system with exactly 
one real user account + root. I don't believe it's too far-fetched a guess 
that such a system is what we're talking about when the OP talks about 
playing audio-cds.
