Specification compliance of icon names

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

 media-tape
   The icon used for generic physical tape media.

Postponed

It's currently not clear if those will stay in the spec, you might hold off drawing those icons until it's clear what will happen with them.

 network-wired
   The icon used for wired network connections.

 network-wireless
   The icon used for wireless network connections.

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.

Don't know what to do with...

 cpu
   The specification does not contain any low-level processing
   units, such as CPUs or RAM. I can't think of an appropriate
   "category" name for those. The only word that I found which
   comes close was "internal-*" (internal-cpu, internal-memory, ...)
   but I'm not sure if this consistent with the rest of the
   devices category in the spec and extensible enough.
   Input and better ideas appreciated.

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.
