Can we add:

      * Integration with icon themes has not been finalised
        (and is not currently part of the specification).

to that list? :)

It's kind of silly that the spec comes so far then falls over at the last
hurdle: what name an icon file should have. I don't remember the rules for
this but it's quite frustrating and undocumented.
