> media-video/pipewire[pipewire-alsa] Replace PulseAudio's ALSA plugin with PipeWire's plugin

is not entirely correct, and should perhaps better be described as "Install ALSA plugin" or the like, as "Replace PulseAudio's ALSA plugin"

a. could suggest that it relates to PA's functionality (while it's actually ALSA)
b. does not apply if PA isn't installed
