I like this latter approach. Clearly marking generic icons as such looks like
an advantage to me.
I am sure there will be people screaming: "Why do all my applications have the
same icon, how should I distinguish them?" But if I understood your proposal
correctly (you could try to make that part clearer), a generic icon would
only be used if the specific icon is not available in *any* theme, right?
Additionally, the application loading the icon could see that it's a generic
one and act accordingly (i.e. provide additional clues like text, ...).
