1. There is a standard for where global icons are installed.
2. There was a recent attempt to develop a standard for where apps

3. There is a project to standardize icon names.

completed and implemented, will there still be anything for your project
If not, I suggest that you join the project to standardize icon names:
and participate in further development of the icon theme spec:
