I hope that there is a streaming server in fedora! In fact there seems
to be icecast. As for a client there are many, and I guess that some
have no X interfaces. But once again, a thought experiment is the only
thing needed, not a real case. And it is not very hard, somebody in the 
thread clearly presented the situations where PA should work, without
the artificial need to resort to a specific use.

I don't think it is of any use. Such situation has to be taken into
account during planning, there is no need for a 'real' case. Of course
it may be useful in later steps, but if not taken into account at the
beginning it is too late later.
