Hmm the discussion you're referring to in [2] is about packaging icon
themes, right? That seems to be an orthogonal discussion.

>From an icon theme package mantainer's point of view, this is what
would be changed by the introduction of this virtual package:

* The maintainer should modify debian/control so that the package
provides the virtual package if it adheres to the fd.o icon naming

* In case the maintainer fails to do so, there might be a lintian
warning eventually.

Sure, once we have the virtual package in place we should probably add
a note or two about it in that page.
