Specification compliance of icon names

With MIME types, there is no complete list of icon names in the spec. Therefore, they are divided in categories:

Standard FD.o MIME Types

This is the complete list in the FD.o spec:

 application-x-executable        OK
 audio-x-generic                 OK
 font-x-generic                  (valid? font-* is not in IANA.)
 image-x-generic                 OK
 package-x-generic               OK (valid? package-* is not in IANA.)
 text-html                       OK
 text-x-generic                  OK
 text-x-generic-template         Needed
 text-x-script                   OK
 video-x-generic                 OK
 x-office-address-book           Needed
 x-office-calendar               Needed
 x-office-document               OK
 x-office-presentation           Needed
 x-office-spreadsheet            OK

These are included in Tango:


It has not yet been determined which Tango icons we will need to use.
