Traditionally, we manage things like audio with groups. If there will be
some new cool approach using all these weird polkit-consolekit-hal(not
anymore)-things we might use it, but the "classical" way is now the
easiest to provide, especially for minimalistic users/systems. You don't
have to use it, the group is empty by default.
Other distributions probably don't do anything with rfkill, as the new
rfkill system is so new.

Even if you have a hardware switch, you can still soft-block devices.
For example, I can soft-block my bluetooth, while with hardware I can
only block wifi and bluetooth simultaneously.
