Specification compliance of icon names

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

Generic Application Names:

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

 * 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
 preferences-desktop-accessibility
 preferences-desktop-font
 preferences-desktop-keyboard
 preferences-desktop-locale
 preferences-desktop-multimedia
 preferences-desktop-screensaver
 preferences-desktop-theme
 system-file-manager
 utilities-system-monitor

Summary of the suggested changes and additions

The ones marked with * and should therefore go into the icon naming specification, presented here in a shorter list for a better overview. Including a suggested short description text like needed for inclusion in the spec.

 newly-suggested-icon
   The icon used for [whatever].
