Ok, but what's actually needed if you don't care about OSS in the
slightest, and don't have support for it compiled in? Most of the
documentation focuses on getting OSS emulation to work, and doesn't
distinguish between software mixing on ALSA, and making OSS use that

Is it just the first bit on that page, something like:

pcm.swmix { 
	type dmix
	ipc_key 313
	slave {
		pcm "hw:0,0"
