Besides what Bastian already points out, I have another concern if we

away from stock items completely.

The document above points to this list of icon names:

What guarantees do we have that referring to an icon name in the "icon
naming spec" will
actually produce an icon ?

GTK+ ships with a built-in icon theme that covers the named icons used
by the stock system (not all listed in the naming spec).

Since gcalctool moved away from stock icons (f962134f66), I can't
tell the difference between "undo" and "clear" - both appear as
the icon not found icon, which causes a problem with usability.
If there is an automatic fallback mechanism, I don't see how it is
working, and "1. Provided a guaranteed, consistent, and high quality
set of icons for use in applications." seems to have evaporated.
