Searching for '', 'fd.o', 'f.d.o', and 'fdo' yields no
results.  Searching for 'standard' only reveals that they:
  * have created a specification to standardise icon names across
    desktops (which, I will note, is not the same as calling something
    'a standard', but seems to have a lot of interest from various
    desktops anyway), and
  * 'hope to eventually provide a subsystem to help standardize
    toolkits on a common look and feel'.
