Specification compliance of icon names

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

                                   usability team what they think
                                   about this issue.)

 * 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 or necessary for it to be in there

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.

   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:

   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.

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

   The icon used for audio line input devices.

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

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