As I am also really unsure if this would affect compatibility. However; the idea I have in mind is: What if there would be a button that switches between the old and the new sounds just by selecting and un-selecting it? [...] It's pretty much the same how the historical add-on works, or how the HD textures used to work just by switching skins and textures.. though I am not sure if switching sounds would also work the same way!
As I already told you, that would be a massive effort^^
Bear in mind that all new sounds for vanilla things would need to be separated out, all sound for new stuff needs to be there regardless however or it wouldn't work. That's a lot of files to manually sort through - I'm pretty sure neither Wolf nor MarKr will even consider that.
@Jagdpanther: I know you've been around for a long time, so you know BK was first and foremost a realism project aiming at a more realistic damage system, more realistic visuals and more realistic audio. So these new sound are actually an expression of the mod achieving one of it's core goals (which it should have long ago but it was bugged) and they stay.
