In case I did not get you wrong:
Do you think it is good to assign 25% of the CPU to some user and
give 75% to the idle process in case no other user needs CPU?
OTOH, is it okay to give one user 25% CPU if 10 other users also
want the CPU (7.5% each, then)?
The only thing which makes sense to control is
- the cumulated time a process consumes CPU
- nice levels to give some processes higher/lower priority than others
