I think its a great idea to provide more "pulse" packages, so the installation 
of PulseAudio would be easier. However I don't think that the "pulse" group is 
a good idea at all, because by installing the whole group you force people to 
install applications they don't use (or need).

"openal-pulse" and "sdl-pulse" would be great. I've had also some struggle to 
recompile "phonon-gstreamer" with PulseAudio support, so "phonon-gstreamer-
pulse" would be another nice package to have. I guess there are plenty of 
packages that support PulseAudio, but haven't been compiled to do so yet.
Best regards,
