I don't know about LibreOffice (I use it about once a year), but Firefox
extensions, while also supposed to be handled by the program itself, are
packaged quite often.

A side package of a very active upstream doesn't sound like something that's
in any risk.  Worst case, you'd need to steal a few icons from the main
project or another theme.

Also, of the two themes I maintain:
* chameleon-cursor-theme: dead upstream for 11 years
  Fixes I had to do since then involved reducing some images to 64x64 (some
  drivers are buggy wrt cursors bigger than that) by shortening their
  shadows, and assigning a whole new set of symlinks to existing ones (KDE
  had an overhaul of names they expect), fortunately without needing any
  actual new ones.
* darkcold-gtk-theme: dead upstream even before I packaged it, I had to do
  non-trivial upstreamish work to port it to GTK3.22.  Still worth the
  effort as Debian didn't have any black theme (at most middle-gray).

An icon theme might be more work than a cursor or window theme as whatever
needs the new icon would borrow from another theme and thus look out of

This is your time, no one has the right to tell you what to work on (at
least not in Debian).  You maintain a diverse set of packages, so a theme
that's not a part of your main area has a pretty low priority.

Thus, my opinion is:
* neither of the concerns raised is a show-stopper, but
* a decision to prioritize other packages over mere eye-candy is valid
  (especially when it turns out it's not as trivial as it seemed)
