That isn't necessarily the case. Getting newer packages into the
already-released 10.04 LTS is much heavier process-wise [to prevent
regressions from release as much as possible].
You might want to raise this question on the kubuntu-devel mailing
list (hosted on lists.ubuntu.com). My feeling is that it's feasible
to stage some packages in a ppa for wider testing before asking for
lucid-proposed, but I'm rather removed from the process these days due
to additional work commitments.

As the user, you understand your operating requirements better than (we) I do.

For Kubuntu proper, you'll want to contact the Kubuntu devs; see the
mailing list mentioned previously. Note that because the packages are
one-and-identical, you'll essentially be referred to the
ubuntu-audio-dev Launchpad team as a point of contact.

Are you referring to the Debian KDE people or the Debian PulseAudio
people (several of us from at least the latter are on this list)?

Kubuntu will use Ubuntu's PA packaging by virtue of the shared repository.

See previous regarding ubuntu-audio-dev and Kubuntu using Ubuntu's PA packaging.

PA is already in 10.10. PA can be installed for Kubuntu 10.04 LTS,
but one would need to configure KDE System Settings properly *and* use
a fixed Phonon.

Bugs are tracked in Launchpad.
