I use GNOME but still try and not waste my disk space for things I do not

The average icon theme for GNOME has an uncompressed size of +/- 10M while
these faenza themes are more than 60M.

% aptitude show "~n gnome-icon-theme" | grep -e "^Package" -e "^Uncompressed Size"
Package: gnome-icon-theme-suede

Package: gnome-icon-theme-blankon

A meta package could help these users, eg. gnome-icon-themes-faenza while
each theme has its own package (gnome-icon-theme-faenza,
gnome-icon-theme-faenza-dark etc.)

Of course, each package (short & long) description should make it clear to
users what is contained in each package.

That is however just a proposal, I do understand your point of view as well.
