The tango base theme does not aim to ship all possible icons you may
find useful on a mobile device. Specifically we decided that
application icons should ship with applications themselves. We want to
avoid an unmaintanable huge theme that tries to ship every icon on
earth. We've been there with gnome icon theme before.
Office-calendar is not part of the naming spec anymore and remained in
the icon theme my mistake.
We are of course open to suggestions for additions to the base theme,
but keep in mind we want to keep this theme as minimal as possible. If
you feel like you're needing some mobile productivity icons, feel free
to set up a page similar to the Art Libre list  and motivate the
artists to draw some artwork. Tuomas Kuosmanen will most likely be a
person to talk to as he's been one of the founders of the Tango project
and now works for Nokia.
