My point about not having sound is that in many cases, you do not want
to have sound coming from your devices when you browse onto a random Web
page, and probably even more so onto a random page on the W3C site :)

I think having the page emitting a sound by default is going to be a
deterrent for many people to go to that page, or encourage others to go
to that page.
