Speaking of Skype, a lot of people have the phones in their palms, meaning that they do everything on their phones such as online banking and paying their merchandises by phones. I only use Skype on my laptop or on the iPad. iPhones, and Android devices are too expensive for me plus, I am on a fixed income.

while customising the sounds would be nice, it's not a show stopper for me.

Some people have hearing impairments, like me. Being able to change the sound to something that wil more easily be heard would be a nice option. Take Skype for iPhone. What if the person has a low/mid frequency loss and needs something very high pitched in order to hear the ring?
Not all people with hard of hearing issues have braille displays.

customisable sounds? not an issue. the ringing sound I hear quite plainly. as for an API for external programs to utilise, why? that then turns what is using limited resources in to a resource hog, and nobody likes a resource hog.

and I'll give you a reason for that: when I'm away from my PC and I
hear that loud old-fashioned phone ringing from my headphones, I
know someone wants my attention in Skype. Was it too hard to implement in a newer version?
I'm 100% sure it was not.
