No it really shouldn't. It should be started by someone
running/logging into X at the console. I don't want Joe random User
accessing the sound daemon when I'm at the console.
Not all daemons are started that way. fetchmail has a daemon mode.
It isn't started that way. Don't let you impression of a name decide
what a program should do.

No, they really shouldn't. It would be nice if they did, but there
is no good reason to require esd to use sound.
