I think you're going to find a lot of people disagree with that.
X is supposed to provide network transparency for the user interface,
and audio is part of the user interface.

It may well be the case that audio doesn't conveniently fit into the
X protocol, but that's due to short-sightedness, not because it doesn't
conceptually belong there.

If the user interface included smell (intentionally), that should be
handled by X as well.
