Is PulseAudio supported on Mac OS X, FreeBSD and Solaris?
If not then we'd need an alternative for these platforms.

That's also something that worries me a bit about OpenAL. It's meant to 
be portable but I wonder how well it's supported and integrated with 
each of these platforms. Note that this worry is in part caused by 
ignorance, that is I don't know that it's widely used and works well on 
all these platforms.
