I guess you mean s/upload/stable update request/ - 
flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound currently is in etch-test only.

I wonder two things:

Is flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound automatically installed as default atm?

Will flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound automatically be installed on upgrades? 

I guess the answer to both questions is "no", so I don't consider moving it to 
etch to be too risky. And not only if the answer to the first question 
is "yes", I wonder if flashplugin-nonfree is installable automatically at all 
atm and if thats done in the default install.

And last but not least, it should be clear, that we off-grounds in respect to 
Debian policy about this - "packages in main must not recommend or depend on 
stuff outside main". This means we disqualify ourself from being a CDD. OTOH 
we create a new type of CDD: nonfree-CDD ;-) 
IMO installing flash-nonfree should be an installation option and default 
to "no". But I guess it's too late for this for etch and hope it's not needed 
for lenny...

I very much suggest so, also with pulseaudio.

Problem is , we are a volunteer project and you cant really force people to do 
or not to do things. That is good and sometimes bad. [I'm not going into what 
I'm thinking about here. You probably guess what I mean anyway.]

Said that, I think we only should announce this as working when sound works in 
kde, flash, java, whatelse?, on thin-clients and on (diskless) workstations - 
and remark _if_ it doesnt work in some configuration.

I also think we agree on this :-)
