Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification.

Generic Application Names:

 accessories-dictionary  OK
 kcalc                   -> accessories-calculator
 kwrite                  -> accessories-text-editor
 khelpcenter             -> help-browser
 konsole                 -> utilities-terminal
 preferences-desktop-wallpaper OK

 * suggesting this for inclusion into the icon naming specification
 ** not in the spec, but let's keep it out of there anyways,
    it's not really suited to be a standard icon

Applications which are to be considered part of the base desktop, such as the calculator or terminal, should use the generic icons specified in this specification, while more advanced applications such as web browsers and office applications should use branded icons which still give the user an idea of what function the application provides.

To do for Oxygen

Icons that are in the spec, but not yet in Oxygen's apps/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.

 accessories-character-map
   The icon used for the desktop's international and extended
   text character accessory program.

 preferences-desktop-accessibility
   The icon used for the desktop's accessibility preferences.

 preferences-desktop-font
   The icon used for the desktop's font preferences.

 preferences-desktop-keyboard
   The icon used for the desktop's keyboard preferences.

 preferences-desktop-locale
   The icon used for the desktop's locale preferences.

 preferences-desktop-multimedia
   The icon used for the desktop's multimedia preferences.

 preferences-desktop-screensaver
   The icon used for the desktop's screen saving preferences.

   The icon used for the desktop's theme preferences.
