Yes but pulse is configured respawn by default, it does take some time to
restart, but does so as soon as you kill it.

That could be... all it takes is something asking via D-bus if pulse is
there... and then it is.

My personal solution has been to unload module-jackdbus-detect when I do
not want pulse connected to jack. pulse takes almost no cpu that way. The
command to unload the module is:

pactl unload-module module-jackdbus-detect

The package pulseaudio-module-jack can be removed to make this more
permanent, but if you will not use pulse maybe just:

sudo chmod -x /usr/bin/pulseaudio

There may be depends problems if you remove the pulseaudio package
itself... for example you browser may be removed as well. Debian depends
are there to protect dummys.
