I guess this whole system provided per app sound preference thing
seems weird to me.  From a  design stand point, does it not make sense
for apps that use sound to expect they should maintain their own sound
settings and reuse them on startup.

To design this into the system seems like a workaround for apps that
fail to properly maintain their own sound preferences. Wouldn't it be
better to patch those apps?

Just my .005 cent,
