OK, I looked. Indeed, the GNOME stuff in stable "of course" misses the
new OpenDocument types. However, the new packages in sid do (but show
generic "ODT" etc icons).
Your links didn't work on sid (where I tested it), though, the links
needed to be in /usr/share/icons/gnome for me.
No idea if its a good idea on sid; the GNOME team can probably better
answer that. I'd guess "no."
However, the problem is that those files exist in gnome-icon-theme
and I'd need to divert them away on sid/testing if I wanted to exchange
those generic icons with the OOo ones. The same applied to the backport
for upgrade issues.
So I am not sure whether I really should do that...
However, on sarge, it's really nice to have the icons. Perhaps
sarge-backports could have a separate, very-low-maintainence, icons package?
