OK, now I see at least one man who understands hotplug well!

It is not a bug, it is the correct state of things as configured per the
book (but you need to say this to Jeremy Utley). It is a perfectly valid
configuration, however, most users want snd-pcm-oss loaded, i.e., this
default is bad. I understand that it is not hotplug's job to load
snd-pcm-oss, but please explain that to Jeremy Utley. I am a very bad 
teacher. (sorry for offensive tone, I should really have formulated this 
in a different way).

Once again, this is not a bug, but an annoying candidate to the FAQ,
i.e. a problem with the book itself. The book currently does not
document the way to load snd-pcm-oss, and the documentation that comes 
with the kernel says the wrong thing:

alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
