It's a pretty dubious hack.

Yes, they should all change with icon theme. We change all app icons
in low or high contrast mode, for example.
The icon _name_ passed to the SM won't change while the app is
running, it's true. But I do think the icon name should be provided
somewhere, rather than derived from the app name itself.
We may also do this dynamically, e.g. in GNOME 1.x the icon found in
the desktop file used to launch an app would override the app's normal
icon, and I think that's a good feature we should restore sometime.
