Yes, I have thought of that, but there are two reasons why I think
it is insufficient:

1/ in some environments (e.g. Debian) the users don't control the menus,
so they could add sounds to their key bound events but when the same
events happened via a menu item they would be SOL

2/ similarly, one would need to add same hook in many places of the config,
a sure way for them to eventually become inconsistent
