I think there's a misunderstanding here.  Emacs usually tries to make
sure commands do *something*, because it' good to return feedback.
So when they don't, they often like to beep to indicate that they
couldn't do what they were asked to do.

I dislike the beep, so I always use the visual-bell instead.  I don't
think turning the bell into nothing at all is a good option.  I'd rather
try and address the reasons that prevent the visual-bell from being
the default.
