Sound naming spec: problems with prefixes

I feel some of the names for the sounds are the wrong way around.
To me, network-connectivity-error should be error-network-connectivity.
So that we could have a generic error sound.
phone-failure should probably be "phone-error", or even "error-phone".
The problem I see is that for some sounds, it's good to be able to match
to a prefix, but sometimes it's not good enough. So to set a generic
"error" sound, I'd need to modify:
power-unplug-battery-low (shouldn't that be battery-low-power-unplug?)
file-trash should probably be trash-file (to match with trash-empty).
I've targetted 30-odd sounds (including the bell) to be user modifiable
in the preferences:
* Battery warning:
* Long action completed:
* Button clicked:
* Button toggled:
* Information or question (have a better idea?)
* New email:
* Empty trash:
* Window maximised:
* Window unmaximised:
* Window minimised:
What do you think?
