Yeah, probably.

Afaics, the mechanism to grant users access to the socket, is
"adduser <user> libvirt". So it seems more natural to simply remove
users from the group again instead of removing the policy alltogether.

That said, if the intention is to disable this rule, you can simply do a
"touch /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/60-libvirt.rules". This will override the
system provided rules file.

The idea behind moving default configuration data to /usr is to make
stateless systems possible.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
