Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification or Tango icon set. If there is no Old Name, please help to determine if we need this icon for KDE4. Note that this is a new directory so all of the renames are going to be in a different directory.

 * 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

To do for Oxygen

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

 
 application-accessories
   The icon for the "Accessories" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

 applications-engineering
   The icon for the "Engineering" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

 applications-games
   The icon for the "Games" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

 applications-office
   The icon for the "Office" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

 applications-other
   The icon for the "Other" sub-menu of the Programs menu.
   (Editor's note: Name needs to be reviewed in collaboration
    with the icon naming specification maintainers, see below.)

 applications-science
   The icon for the "Science" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

 applications-system
   The icon for the "System Tools" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

 preferences-desktop
   The icon for the "Desktop Preferences" category.

 preferences-desktop-peripherals
   The icon for the "Peripherals" sub-category of the
   "Desktop Preferences" category.

 preferences-desktop-personal
   The icon for the "Personal" sub-category of the
   "Desktop Preferences" category.

 preferences-other
   The icon for the "Other" preferences category.

 preferences-system
   The icon for the "System Preferences" category.

 preferences-system-network
   The icon for the "Network" sub-category of the
   "System Preferences" category.

Suggested changes and additions

Including a suggested short description text like needed for inclusion in the spec.

 applications-education
   The icon for the "Education" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

 application
    link to applications-other

 preferences
    link to preferences-other

"other" implies that the icon should be a generic one, and indeed applications-other and preferences-other make for a good fallback if there are categories not covered by a given theme. Also, at least KDE has no "other preferences" category, but rather a separate system settings application and a menu (with icon), both using one general settings icon for the whole set of sub-elements. However, with the "-other" suffix, they won't be used as a fall back so a link is going to be needed.
