Sil works similarly. Indeed Stealth is perhaps primarily about noise, and uses a 'sound distance' in calculations (there are also separate noise-creating events), but it's abstracted away enough that we're happy giving visual clues as a bonus to the roll to notice. Player invisibility isn't currently in the game, but it might go in at some point, and has a natural mechanical interpretation: completely removing this visual bonus (compared to disguise, which halves it).
