[Kde-accessibility] System Bell

The survey about system settings did reveal some confusion about the system bell (i.e. there was no clear association with other settings). Most users do not even know what the system bell can be used for (and even experts doubt to have the hardware). But there are still people who want it for low latency audio feedback [1] and notification on the console [2].
Nevertheless I agree with removing this feature or rather harmonizing with default notification. As a notification feature you could bind the system bell to some special activities, like console tasks. And disabled people adjust notifications instead of accessibility, or both.
