I think that you miss the point.  The only problem is that these icons 
were renamed from CrystalSVG to HiColor.

We MUST have HiColor icons according to both KDE policy:

So, the question is why HiColor icons were renamed to CrystalSVG. since 
this accomplishes nothing except to screw things up.

The HiColor icons MUST be installed as hicolor.  There is NO problem if 
there aren't any CrystalSVG icons, KDE will just fall back to the 
HiColor theme.
