Actually, we do. And I try to fix the more important problems with 
PulseAudio when I have the time to do so. (It's not always easy to know 
which problems are important: which ones only happen to one specific 
user and which ones happen to many, and e g which ones appear to happen 
to many but in fact are 10 different driver fixes instead, and so on.)

Anyway. The original poster asked when ~/.pulse changed to 
~/.config/pulse, I think this was with PA 3.0 (or possibly PA 2.0) to 
follow the XDG specification better. That should translate to either 
12.10 or 13.04 in Ubuntu terms.

Also, with the above in mind, feel free to read my guide on how I think 
one should disable PulseAudio here:
