it's not that anyone wants to listen to those 3 items at the same time
but rather it is very useful to have audio control that permits that
because if you are watching a movie, and you get a telephone call or an
e-mail or a system event wants to sound an alarm, it too should be heard
and at a relative volume.

That is one of the functions of pulseaudio
