- "This sound is an accessibility feature (without it, blind people can't
know when to type their username/password)."

i understand (even if sounds during a session maye also be accessibilty feature)


- "The problem is then when multiple users use the same PC: who is allowed
to change the login screen?  Considering that changing this might result
in security issues, I don't think it's strange to find it in the
"Administration" menu."

you're right


- "OTOH, maybe the "Appearance" panel could have a button to the login
screen settings that's only visible to people who are members of the
'admin' group.  (So it would still require root credentials.)"

That suggestion seems to me very clever
And maybe that the same thing could be done for "Sound" panel which
could also have a button to the login screen settings that's only
visible to people who are members of the 'admin' group ?
