IMHO this is because PulseAudio is somewhat buggy to go into polished 
distributions. I hardly could use it on Arch Linux, and I am accustomed 
to general Arch Linux's instability. (Arch Linux is bleeding-edge by 
definition.) Distributions jumped to PulseAudio too soon. Also, the 
developers of PulseAudio could split the source code into stable and 
trunk branches.
