I guess Bluecurve used whatever name Garrett thought would work at the 
time (pre any kind of spec ages).
Is Bluecurve even used to any extent in Fedora these days though, isn't 
it mist+gnome-icon-theme?
Should probably file a bug on the bluecurve package to fix the name 
either way.

I've intended to look into this for some time now, but haven't gotten 
around to it.
Lots of places link to tango-project.org, so I think it would be a good 
thing to get that domain again (I can pay for it).
