Well, I wouldn't consider any other mimetype icon to be appropriate for empty
files. Imagine a file manager that displays the text-x-generic icon for an
empty file - this indicates that the file has contents, which is misleading.
Are there any examples of file managers (or file listings, like in the
file-open dialog) that do not use a separate icon for empty files?
