I'd wire most rooms for whole house audio, with category cables to keypad locations, but leave most cables buries behind drywall. Use an AV receiver to supply 4-5 of those zones, with volume controls in those zones. In 3-4 years those VCs will be swapped out for keypads, and zones added.
So, my vote would be for some distributed audio, in addition to the basics - LAN, alarm, 5.1 wiring for the FR, telephone, coax to all possible TV locations.
With speaker and category cables to all possible future zones, and cables in place to other key locations, you'll be set for expansion as budget allows.
