Here (2010.1 x86_64) KDE does not have a dependency on pulse audio.
Gnome has, because pulseaudio (actually the package is pulseaudio-esound-
compat) provides esound, which is required by gnome.

Anyway, you can simply disable pulseaudio from the control center, so it is 
not a problem to have the package still lying around.
