I agree that this is an issue that needs to be addressed. At the
present time it isn't much of a problem. However, when we all start to
use icon names that conform to the icon naming specification, it will
become an issue.

I agree. HiColor should become a fd.o icon theme whose home is at fd.o.

Actually in many cases, it is, or should be, the first resort when the
user's chosen icon theme doesn't have the needed icon.
