Accessible theme thoughts

Since I seem to be spending most of my time playing catch-up with the
increasingly-sprawling accessible themes these days, I got to wondering
if going forward we can't put more of the responsibility on the
individual modules to install accessible icons alongside their regular

The current situation just doesn't seem very workable going forward, if
we're considering accessibility to be a core feature.  We don't expect
applications to submit all their icons to gnome-icon-theme for
inclusion-- they just install their own.  A similar process for
accessible themes seems like a logical extension to me.

Modules installing appropriate icons into $(themedir)/HighContrast etc.
would be one way, assuming it's actually possible to work out where
those themes lives at install time, but that sounds rather ugly.  Anyone
any better ideas?
