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.

 emblem-link              -> emblem-symbolic-link
 emblem-mounted           OK *

 * 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
