Specification compliance of icon names

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

 *  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.
