I think the major difference between video and audio here are that video (usually) keeps state on the screen. So if you stop sending video out of the blue, the user would see a frozen picture. That why it makes more sense to replace that information with intended black.

But with audio there is not confusing last information rendered until replaced. Thus I would actually suggest to simply send nothing. Because in my opinion comfort noise is something which is not supported by all audio codecs and usually needs to be negotiated on top. Thus suggesting CN or DTX would make this features required to be supported.
