I don't think that associating an icon with a folder through GIO is a
bad thing: in this way every filemanager based on GIO will benefit of
this feature. If you move things to nautilus, every other filemanager
has to implement it, and this is bad.

If the problem is only that there are not icons for XDG directories
they simply could be added to the "design new icons" queue. Right?
