Maybe, yeah, though if it came through the TV then you'd have a weird sort of disconnect between what you're talking to and what's responding and I think Apple would care about that aural aspect of the UI; I think the chime at least should come from the remote to show that it's active.
Plus, if it didn't work then it's a bit less obvious whether it's the Apple TV or the remote that isn't working. Though that's a lesser issue, and probably solveable in other ways (mainly by making it always work ).
