No, it's not.  You can either have each user have a mountpoint in
their own home directory, or you can use a common mountpoint which
gets forced to the ownership of the user in the login procedure
(typically via fbtab(5) or the XFree86 login, e.g. xdm's GiveConsole
script).  You have to be careful with security, but it's not very
different from letting ordinary users mount media in the first place.
