on *:BEEP:#: { echo -ate * Beeped: $target }
on *:BEEP:?: { echo -ate * Beeped: $target }

Mainly, this would be useful in identifying which window is beeping when not scrolled all of the way to the bottom.

Yes. It can be confusing locating the source of the beep when there are several sources of /beep, including scripts, options\sounds\events, highlight, the 4 kind of options\sounds\beep-on-message, etc.

Something like this, or an identifier like $lastbeep or an icon in toolbar that gives a tooltip showing the cause of the latest beep.

Or even something like a /scroll_all_windows_to_bottom command

The most common cause is as mentioned by OP, often caused by the mouse accidentally scrolling up slightly without realizing it.
