They are indeed handy for knowing the time. It is also part of the ambience, it wouldn't be the same without them.
They're beautiful in the distance, but not a few yards outside my hotel window.

I know I'd like to ring the bell of the 40 year old jackass who has been riding his kid's mini-bike up and down my street for the last half hour

While sitting at a red light this week I heard the bells of a local church and thought how soothing, untill the emergency test siren went off at the same time. Throw in some prayer calls and you would have a really weird sound track. (trying to remember how prayer calls sound)

That article is interesting to me. I live on the east side of Michigan (within 30 minutes of Hamtramick). One mosque within 5-10 miles of my house has been blaring the Islamic Call as long as I've lived here (13 years). While it's too far away for me to hear, friends in the area say they hear it everyday. I didn't realize this policy was up for debate. As far as I know, they've been doing it for a long time.
