I am not sure what you want? If people write their own .xinitrc, then
they do that because they want better control of what is started in
their X session and what is not. Now, I am not sure what you are are
asking for? Shall I find some magic way that PA is started even when
people use their own handcrafted xinitrc? You know, I am pretty sure
that people would hate me even more for that than with the current
solution. If people want the extra bit of control, than they should
have it -- and that includes the control if, when and where to start PA.

Again, my focus is to get things working out-of-the-box for the
default cases. If you feel you need to write your own session scripts,
then you're welcome to do so -- to get PA working on such setups all you
need to do is add a "pulseaudio -D" to that script.  That seems to be
a very reasonable solution for me.
