"The fake shutter sound saves me from making some bad shots.   Like when I come indoors, take a shot, and notice a long time between start and end of exposure.  I know right away I left the camera on ISO 100 and I fix it and get back to shooting.

Huh.  I would think seeing "ISO100" in the LCD and EVF would be more important. 

Seeing as how the fake shutter is useful, and it is quieter than the mechanical one, a reasonable question is why can't it be disabled?

It is a generally accepted principal of user interface design that any feature or option that does not truly serve a purpose should be eliminated.  Its presence adds clutter.

OMG that is is stretch.   One line that says, "Silent Shutter" in the UI is not adding clutter, and is an option that so many here would find valuable.   Your argument that the loud fake shutter sound is a "benefit" is summed up on a tee-shirt...
