How can policykit, which is, according to the description on its web page, just 
a parser for configuration similar to that one in /etc/sudoers, help here?

In my opinion, the best place to configure it is in the kernel. See 
http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/3/18/100 and help me to improve this patch, by 
addressing the objection about not covering hfs and ncphs filesystems.
