I would say either 1 second of 'comfort noise',  or stretch the dialtone
out an additional second.

However,  you should strive to eliminate such delays.   If there is a delay
of 1 or 2 whole seconds, or worse, before the remote switch is ringing,
 something seems quite wrong.

Playing any tone other than "RING"  is going to likely be  an unfamiliar
tone or out of place tone and cause even more confusion or error reports
than 1 second of silence.

Although one might look at the possibility of a modified 'ringback' tone,
 that sounds distinctive:  it would seem to be equally disallowed by the
new rules, for telcos.
