Yes it should but there is still a lot to be discussed. I'm personaly 
not fully satisfied with the current naming scheme.
Once every one agrees, there is also a need to provide a small tool to 
convert current themes (KDE,GNOME,OOo,etc) but this is the easiest part.

Additionaly, it may be interesting to recommand SVG and PNG for the 
formats and a way to raster SVG drawings (there is alpha and scale 
issues). The goal being to make it as easy as possible for the icon 
artist (just provide SVG files) and the desktop developper (generate the 
corresponding bitmaps in different scales and package the theme).
