153 of the removed icons are gnome-mime-* icons which are used
automatically as mime type icons from libgnomeui's gnome-icon-lookup.
Same for the gnome-fs-* icons, partly by libgnomeui, partly from
nautilus. Nautilus also uses some gnome-dev-* icons. And the spinner
icons are used widely, epiphany + nautilus + gedit + beagle (at least).
That accounts for most of the removed icons already, and I just checked
a few of the gnome core desktop modules that I have checked out; I
didn't even check any third-party applications!
