There's no evidence that module-zeroconf-publish has anything to do with

If the 20s delay is caused by some D-Bus message timing out, have you
investigated what message is timing out and why? I don't think it's
expected behaviour, so fixing this in PulseAudio is working around a bug
elsewhere. I support any patches that remove blocking IO from the main
thread, though, so I'm fine with having the fix anyway, but pushing it
to master at this point doesn't seem justified (not a regression, and
the bug impact seems very limited).
