So this is a bug - the source shouldn't contain old OOo icons any more.
The relevant bug report is
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33229, but I don't know how
far Thorsten (or anybody else?) has been able by now to update the
places where the old icons appear.

We do. Thorsten did integrate all the different sizes we (LibO Design
The largest scale is 256x256 for all application/document icons.
They look like this:
One month ago Jakub Steiner mentioned already the lack of 256px icons.
Thorsten had been involved in this discussion, but I don't know if the
source of the problem could already be found out and solved in master.
If not, it's my fault too, because I didn't include the topic in the bug
report until today :-(

Of course. We do provide the large scale, they are just not distributed
in the respective /usr/share/icons/hicolor/ folders.

It's their decision (even if we hope they would be satisfied by our
hires icons). The least we would ask is not to use OpenOffice.org symbols...
PS: Designers: We should think of providing single SVG icons (256px) to
be provided as scalable sources in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable.
But I think it is not as easy as extracting .png files from the Inkscape
source, if we want to get single flat icons for every application...
