I'd say Xubuntu documentation included in Xubuntu image iso files
would be the better place to write about it, besides the release notes
that one is supposed to read before downloading an iso image file.
Then user could get that information even without internet connection.
I'd suggest the page corresponding to
file:///usr/share/xubuntu-docs/troubleshooting-multimedia.html in
Xubuntu 9.10 documentation. Would people responsible for taking
pulseaudio into Xubuntu take care of adding instructions on how to
remove pulseaudio for some people will not like the regressions it
causes, please?

I am not sure, if this is the best way:
1) "sudo pulseaudio --kill" (is sudo needed?)
2) "sudo apt-get remove --purge pulseaudio gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio"
3) restart

At least there exists xserver-xorg-video-nv in a repository for Lucid.
