Anything which is not a human logging in to read his mail. Can be a
streaming server, a background PVR app with a kiosk-like interface
statically routed to a video output, an audio app sitting on the home
music store directly remote-controlled, etc
If you call this a "session", then you can just run "pulseaudio -D"
from that session too.
Or you can just bypass PA and directly access the HW, since there's
not much point in using PA if you don't have an UI for it anyway. Just
use "hw:0" as ALSA audio device instead of "default" or
