Hmm, sounds useful. I think I can do that while I'm at it. However wouldn't it 
conflict with the idea of "System icons", because they would actually be 
"Application icons"? Also, I don't think it would be wise to replace the 
system icons, because those are icons users know and they will inevitably 
want to select one of 'em. But from the other side, getting a huge list of 
contexts under "System icons" isn't the way to go either. Maybe optionally 
adding a list for "Applications icons" between "System icons" and "Other 
icons" would be the way to go.
