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.


  "Implementations are required to look in the "hicolor" theme if
   an icon was not found in the current theme."

Which suggests that there should be a fallback mechanism, but given the
gcalctool example, it doesn't seem to be implemented?
