/dev/dsp is OSS not alsa, programs using alsa should be compatible with pulseaudio

Even with pulseaudio, you have something else driving the sound. If you removed all sound applications except pulseaudio, you will have no sound at all. pa is just an audio server. Without alsa or oss, you have no sound.
