 incomplete or not all-sufficient

 This issue won't be fixed by upstream, because they leave choice to users.
 Tango icons theme was chosen by us, because Rodent (default icons theme) was 
abandonned since 4.4 release. At the time, Tango was sufficient.
 Currently I'm working on next stable of Parole (Xfce's multimedia player) and 
main developers use symbolic icons. I asked to replace some icons from other, 
because Tango and GNOME don't have.
 So GNOME in future will not necessarily be right choice.
