Just guessing:

They discovered that its possible to use dmix (with a global configuration) 
and that more and more apps support dmix in a stable way...
And so they said, hey, why don't we create a general configuration for dmix 
and make it the default alsa device?

Or was it just that newer ALSA version use and install dmix per default???

Arnold, who doesn't need dmix since he own a sblive
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the 
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be 
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
