Its a bit similar to asking if compiz will be 'default'. Its not an Arch
decision anyway, what will happen in future is that upstream apps will
either be exclusively pulse or at least prefer pulse. Meaning libpulse
will almost always be pulled in anyway, and at least under gnome a fresh
install would use pulse.
