  Well, Kile has had this icon since 2004-2005, if I remember correctly. Besides, I don't think that this rule really applies here since "Kile" is a name and not an arbitrary word, i.e. there should be no need to localize it (think of other product names like TeX, LaTeX, Unix, Linux, or Microsoft Windows, for example). Judging from Kile's Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kile, the name "Kile" has made it to Japanese, Chinese, and Russian already.
