To do for Oxygen

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

 camera-video
   The fallback icon for video cameras

Icons in Tango, but not in the spec

We don't need to have those, but if we do they should be named this way:

 media-zip
   The icon for Iomega Zip media.

Summary of the suggested 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.

 audio-headset
   The icon used for handsfree headset devices that combine a pair
   of headphones or earphones with a microphone.

 audio-input-line
   The icon used for audio line input devices.

 video-projector
   The icon used for a projector that video gets displayed to.

 video-television
   The icon used for a television device, such as
   CRT or flat panel displays.
