Specification compliance of icon names

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

 file-broken              -> rework into emblems/emblem-unreadable.
                             Currently only in use by apps/libs as
                             "image could not be loaded" substitute.
 folder                   OK with the current spec, but it
                             really belongs to mimetypes as
                             inode-directory *, in order to
                             follow the shared MIME info standard.
 folder-home              -> user-home
 folder-red               -> svn cp to folder-root *
 folder-red,
 folder-blue,
 folder-brown,
 folder-cyan,
 folder-green,
 folder-grey,
 folder-orange,
 folder-violet,
 folder-yellow            -> keep for now, but try to bring up some
                             substitute functionality, like tinting
                             folders by code, or putting the regular
                             folder on a colored background.
 folder-bookmarks,
 folder-development,
 folder-html,                
 folder-image,
 folder-important,
 folder-locked,
 folder-print,
 folder-sound,
 folder-tar,
 folder-txt,
 folder-video             -> svn rm
                             (emulate with folder + emblem overlay)
 link                     -> emblems/emblem-symbolic-link
                             (blow up to the full icon size)
 network-wired            -> network *
                             (alternative: devices/network-wired)
 network-local            -> network-local **
                             (depends on the previous one being
                              added to the spec, otherwise:
                              devices/network-wired-local **)
 trashcan-empty-alt       -> svn rm, or move to alternative/
 user-trash               OK
 user-trash-full          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

To do for Oxygen

Icons that are in the spec, but not yet in Oxygen's places/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.

 folder-remote
   The icon used for normal directories on a remote filesystem.

 network-server
   The icon used for individual host machines under the
   “Network Servers” place in the file manager.
   (Editor's note: a computer in a network.)

 network-workgroup
   The icon for the “Network Servers” place in the desktop's
   file manager, and workgroups within the network.
   (Editor's note: a workgroup like Windows' "WORKGROUP".)

 start-here
   The icon used by the desktop's main menu for accessing places,
   applications, and other features. (Editor's note: Seems like
   we want to move apps/kmenu to places/start-here.)

 user-desktop
   The icon for the special “Desktop” directory of the user.

Summary of the suggested changes and 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.

 folder-root
   The icon used for the root directory of a filesystem.

 folder -> mimetypes/inode-directory
   ...also, include more explanation about how the icon naming
   specification interacts with the shared MIME info specification,
   and which mimetype icons from there should really be in a
   minimal icon theme like the ones that the naming spec defines.

 network
   The icon used for generic network connections.
