The problem is that we don't want an unbounded criteria for inclusion.
i.e. whatever your criteria for including icons, it should not lead to
including an infinite number of icons. ;-)

So, my criteria is "likely to be useful in any kind of application,"
or maybe "not sensible in an application-specific library."  The stock
system is extensible; so you can have a games library, a sound app
library, an email library, etc. that add those sort of icons.

What the heck are they for? Has anyone ever used them outside of the
GNOME demo apps?

It's a fried egg. ;-) If it was a bit more meaningful maybe...
