I thought from what you wrote:

that Debian requires a root without an actual need for that.

This is where I think the flaw is - in erroneously requiring to be a root.

I described the system. I'll gladly hear your suggested solution.

I'll even settle for you saying where the logic flaw is that causes root to
be erroneously required.

Again, elaborate on "this", and we can have a discussion. As far as I can
see, we have a very reasonable set of requirements, each of them totally
reasonable, and they lead to the conclusion that either root or a way to
treat non-root as root is required. Show me the flaw in the logic, and we
can discuss "better" alternatives.
