Not sure I see a problem. Icon themes shouldn't install icons for
applications in hicolor, applications should install their own icons.
If you have a seperate theme that installs icons for applications
that's fine, just don't install them in hicolor. The only real problem
I can see if deciding which icon to choose: menu-editor from the
current theme (matches the theme better) or menu-editor-foo from
hicolor (application's own icon).
