Sound layer next for Google Earth?

BBC News has a short article on Wild Sanctuary's efforts to have Google add their sound library to Google Earth.

It could be neat to have sounds for different areas but there could also be issues. For example, would all cities sound the same? New York City sounds very different from Islamabad. Would all forests have the same bird chirping? I am sure Wild Sanctuary does indeed have a vast library but the world is so unique.

None the less, it would be fascinating to try out a sound layer.
