Perhaps all the media-dvd-* types should fall back to
media-dvd. This would allow people to have a generic
DVD icon. If a media-dvd icon isn't provided, they
would still end up falling back to media-cdrom.
It would be rather silly to have a normal DVD show up
with a special DVD icon, but to have a DVD+R show up
with a normal CD icon.
