That's probably Marc's call as he's probably going to be the one maintaining
this. I for one still don't think that one needs this much effort to solve
such a little problem.

That's true but you can solve this without writing a whole new IO slave as
well. I have a hard time coming up with other situations in which an
x-kde-icon IO slave might make sense, this seems like quite a special case
and introducing a new IO slave for that looks a little over the edge to me.
Or is all this flexibility which Marc's implementation provides required for
some case which I'm not aware of?
I still think a little placeholder magic can solve this nicely with much less
(maintenance) effort, but I'll obey to "He who codes decides".
