I agree that when displaying the emblems to users they should at least
be categorized into Content and Status categories. Right now its just
hodge-podge. Can you open a bug for that? Probably slamming a simple
named divider will make an improvement.

Guessing the content might be runtime costly and error prone. If I have
two folders with a lot of pictures, it doesn't mean I want a little
photo icon on both. Maybe on of them is a website. You'd have to get
into some crazy statistical analysis.

If nautilus had built-in file sharing the share emblem could be

Alternatively, perhaps you could hard-code certain folder names, and
auto-attach certain emblems. Or perhaps we can include a Folder-making
Druid for the purpose of putting standard named, fully translated,
emblem attached, root-level folders such as Music, Photos, Downloads,
etc, (overkill?).
