Unfortunately, as Richard alluded to, that isn't how ConfBridge works.
It doesn't have the ability to segment users into sets of channels and
play prompts specifically to them in a non-blocking fashion.

Adding such logic would require a substantial re-architecting of
ConfBridge - and given the scope of that work, such a feature would
probably be best implemented as an external application built on top
of ARI.
