This system has been in place for years - when big guns fire, you see a big ! show up on the map. And things shoot at it automatically (since its technically a radar dot). This happens regardless how close or far your observs are (flags have radar with epic range).
I don't like the idea of LoS on distant firing units. Radar mark is ok (not 100% accuracy when firing on it), full LoS not. It will just make rocket arty totally useless, I feel Katyusha was nerfed enough as is with its short range and low damage power per-rocket.
Besides, while you certainly can detect artillery fire by its sound irl, you can even identify the type of gun this way, you cannot pinpoint it's position to the same level of accuracy LoS gives. Counter-battery is fully viable with radar marks, we just don't have the type of guns which are good at this task (with huge area of effect to quickly destroy 'soft' towed guns).
