These are all under the class of "something has happened which you did
not specifically ask to happen and may require your attention"
And so would be perfect candidates to have the sound.

Interestingly, this is hovering between two categories
Stating the obvious and "something has happ....."
Device inserted, well, I know I've plugged the device in, I remember
having to take 4 goes to line up the USB connector correctly
But mounting the device is an automatic thing so it should have the sound.
Its a weird and interesting edge case.

No-one was talking about killing ALL sounds.
I was talking about replacing the myriad of sound effects that we have
with one sound.
A sound that is easy to learn its meaning, unlike 125 random sounds.
