Assuming the faenza icon theme does adhere to the fd.o icon naming
spec, I think there's not much we can do about this. Most likely, the
DE itself requires icons that are not defined by the standard. This
virtual package would only benefit packages that depend only on the
subset of icons defined in the spec.

If there's another, broader standard (even if it's DE-specific), it
might be worth considering creating an additional virtual package
(say, something like kde-icon-theme).
