Then we’d be properly acknowledging sign language speakers as our fellow citizens. Hell, even exposure once in your schooling would help with that.

And I’d be able to borrow my deaf neighbours’ ladder without them them shooing me away because they assume I’m a salesperson. (It happened the once.)

Plus, a lot more parents would use sign language with their hearing babies, because they can’t wait until they develop the motor skills to speak.
