Specification compliance of icon names

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

 all category icons       missing

 * 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/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.

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

   The icon for the "Programming" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

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

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

   The icon for the "Graphics" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

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.

Problematic category icons

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