Answering to the general "Phonon integration", not the Linux Flash player in 
On Linux we have ALSA to do the mixing, which is why ISVs start using ALSA 
finally. On other systems /dev/dsp will do mixing automatically (like many of 
us wanted the Linux kernel to do). On all remaining systems we need to use a 
soundserver, and I believe PulseAudio is the main candidate there (lacks 
testing on my side to be sure though). Having one place to define whether to 
use a soundserver, how to access it, and so on is another thing that would be 
nice to standardize. But that's orthogonal to the DBus interface for volume 
control and device selection, no?
