This discussion is very valuable, and I am interested in seeing where it heads.
But to go back to your original problem of trying to capture something in a performance setting -- how about a "cough" shutter sound
Likewise, in nature mode - perhaps a "cricket" sound

It wasn't that particular bill. I was googling and I now can't find where I read that.
Anyway, it would be easier if RIM could save us the trouble by forcing a default shutter sound down our throats. At least, it would be their lawyers who have to deal with the courts.

I was thinking of exactly the same thing - taking a screen shot while the viewfinder is on.
Criminals will not be stupid enough to use a camera that makes noise. They can easily build / buy a stealth / spy camera, the kind of thing that undercover journalists use. They are sold everywhere. A simple google search will confirm this.

I've just finished updating API docs with this most excellent new policy on Camera Shutter sounds.
* The Camera library does not automatically play audible shutter sounds
* when a picture is taken or a video is recorded. Camera applications
* must supply their own sound when a photo is captured or a video
* recording begins and ends. Please note that while you can choose to not have
* a shutter sound when taking a picture – you are responsible to ensure the app
* adheres to all local laws of regions in which you wish to distribute the application.
* For example, it is illegal to mute or modify the shutter sound of a camera
* application in Japan and Korea. Please check local laws prior to distributing
* your application.
