This is absolutely inspired! I've recently been trying to involve a few
friends of mine in developing a series of open source notification
sounds at high quality, to distribute as a way to get them involved in
open source from a music tech point of view. 

Until now I've had no takers for it, although some interest in getting
involved. Would it not be prudent to make a call out to the
"general-listening-public" to see if any other music tech geeks out
there want to create a library of sounds for the gnome desktop, and as
part of the development they extend and improve on the basic sound theme
naming spec as it has been shown here.
