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
 folder-home              -> user-home
 folder-red               -> folder-root *
 folder-blue,      \
 folder-brown,      \
 folder-cyan,        \
 folder-green,        \
 folder-grey,          \
 folder-orange,         \
 folder-violet,          \
 folder-yellow            -> svn rm, without replacement
 folder-video             -> svn rm, emulate with folder + emblem overlay
 link                     -> rework into emblems/emblem-symbolic-link
 network-wired            -> devices/network-wired
                             or devices/network *
 network-local            -> devices/network-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.

   The icon used for normal directories on a remote filesystem.

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

   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".)

   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.)

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

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 the root directory of a filesystem.
