It may not be a consideration for Lubuntu, but for low vision users
having sounds enabled by default helps a considerable amount. A login
sounds help the user know that the desktop is loading, for instance.

Personally I turn them off too, nothing more embarrassing than a start
up sound when I start up my computer during a talk at a conference :)
