This problem has been solved as good as possible for both the icon and
the sound theme: a theme can specify another theme it wants to inherit
from which might be the most applicable for fallback sounds. And the
dash notation allows coalescing of sounds: i.e. you just need to stick
a sound "complete" in the theme and if "complete-print-job" is not
available it will fall back to "complete" and you will still get some
kind of generic completion sound. Woot! That's made of awesome, isn't it?
