[icon naming] "zoom" vs. "page-zoom"

Hi list,

JRT and I have a disagreement (see 
http://lists.kde.org/?t=121062542200004&r=1&w=2 for the whole thread)
and we'd like to get the official stance on this issue, from The People Who 
Brought Us The Icon Naming Specification (TM).

Basically, JRT wants to introduce a generic zoom icon named "zoom" as fallback 
for any zoom-* icons, and I disagree with that because I believe stuff like 
zoom-in, zoom-original or zoom-fit-width can't have a sensible common 
fallback, and should fall back to the parent theme instead of "zoom".

Each of us is stubborn enough to not give in, so we're asking you for 
technical advice on who's right here.

Thanks for your input, wishes,
