we have different opinion on what is a bug an what are legit
maintainer decisions.
optional pulseaudio support is surely not a bug: pulseaudio is not
optional at all in slackware 14.2 and I explained why we cannot
consider it optional even in the next Slackware release: stuff in
/extra is not part of a Slackware full installation and we support
just that.
that said, is up to the maintainer if they want to add a switch in
their SlackBuilds to make pulseaudio optional (with pulseaudio enabled
by default, of course), and it's up to the users to use it (under
their own responsibility) or not.
