Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification. Also, the existing emblem icons need to be blown up to full icon size once emblems are done with automatic resizing and placement.

    it's not really suited to be a standard icon

   audio content, such as music collection folders or audio CDs.

   video content, such as video collection folders or video DVDs.
   (Editor's note: Let's extract this from places/folder-video.)
