Hi Andrew
Almost missed your messages as I'm not subscribed to the list. Make sure you include my email when replying. :-)
The Icon Audit is clearly outdated. It was started at the same time the Freedesktop naming spec was being developed (as used by Tango and others).The Wiki represents the current plan, but I want to transfer across the good stuff from my original document as a starting point.
I think different icon sizes should not exist within the same zip archive for a theme to avoid overheads/ faster load time. But this is something to discuss with developer input.
I will be on IRC this evening  to discuss Icons with anyone who is about.

Hi Andrew
I'm another Andrew who also cares about Icons! (Normally people refer to me by my User name of 'ace_dent').I first started to analyse the problem about 5yrs ago(!) but gave in under the original Sun ownership.I have started the bare seeds of this over on the wiki:http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Icon_Themes
I'm first trying to move the work I did in an earlier audit of all the icons into the wiki, to move things forward. See here:http://people.bath.ac.uk/ea2aced/OOo/OOoIconCat.odt
- Please jump in and get involved!
I agreed with your points, however, I would like to split out large / small icons into two different zip archives. There is some performance reasons for doing this, and makes naming conventions easier, but I think I need some input from coding gurus...
