Other sound notifications (various flavors of messages etc.) come with an explanatory icon on the lock screen. The battery low notification on the other hand remains an unexplained random beep. There should be some direct indication of low battery state on the lock screen.

Reducing passive distraction by hiding 50–100% battery charge under the fold is a reasonable idea. Hiding 0–20% battery charge under the fold defeats it somewhat by requiring the user to engage in active distraction by checking it.

I haven't check yet if all notification sounds are different, but I think that a page where to learn to recognize the various sounds would be nice.
E.g. something to be added to the Tutorial app: a list of buttons to press to hear the sound with the explanation written on the next column.

Now when there is status bar included battery level on the lockscreen it should be easy to make warning - at least with the color of battery indicator.
