Provide developers and API to access default system sounds (such as those found in Settings - ringtones+sounds)
It would be really helpful if, for example, a developer makes an app that takes advantage of the schedule alarm API, and would like to enable the user to select a custom ringtone for that alarm. This API proposal would enable the user to select from many ringtones already available on the phone, and save developers the trouble of having to implement their own custom ringtones.

I absolutely agree. I am surprised that each alarm app needs to provide its own set of sound files.
