Is multimedia streaming server/client the predominate outstanding
X-less real-world usage case that needs to be considered for pulse
integration ?  What's the software stack(s) we are talking about?
Mythtv? mpd? elisa?  Are there a configuration of a headless streamer
that can be played with inside fedora project controlled repository?
Or do they all use bits that live in 3rd party repos?

I think if we gave the people who grok pulse at least one specific
software configuration for them to spend a little time playing with,
then we might be able to get a clearer picture on how to move forward
in X-less multimedia server situations.  I think people are sort of
talking past each other, it would help if we all had a target
configuration to duplicate and use as a reference.
