Don't get me wrong, I have all sounds disabled on my laptop since I may use it 
during class. But I actually went and disabled audio notifications instead of 
complaining that it was not the default setting.

A case-by-case evaluation would certainly be a good way to do it. I personally 
think the login sound plays a bit too early in the startup sequence, but have 
not noticed issues with the logout sound (probably because I've disabled it 
;). Not sure whether it makes sense to disable by default but assuming we 
leave it in there's no reason that it should not be a short-and-sweet goodbye.
