Is setting +pulseaudio by default for gstreamer1-gst-plugins-good really necessary?

Hi everyone,

The dependency on gstreamer plugins has recently grown in Wine.
When installing -good I noticed it has pulseaudio as a default variant.
Looking at the portfile I couldn't find a reason why. Building with
-pulseaudio works fine for me.

Could anyone shed some light on this decision? Using/requiring pulseaudio
seems counterproductive to me.

Kind regards,
