I suppose this is outside Icon Naming Spec scope. You could declare an
"internal" recommended naming standard in xkeyboard-config. As well as
GTK+ provides "gtk-landscape" or "gtk-printer-paused" themeable stock
icons, you could define your own "xkb-capslock" and suggest developers
to use those names.

Do we really need 2 named icons for 1 led?
 maybe not the actual name...
