I'd say the intuitiveness depends on whether one's intuition
says that the client connects to a sink (routing decision
done at client connection time) or to the pulseaudio daemon
(routing decision done at stream creation time). The
asynchronous client API supports the view that client
connects to the daemon, because the desired sink is supplied
only when creating a new stream.
