That's one of the reasons it is not differentiated in 16x16. At bigger
sizes one of the reasons might be (re)writeable media - having although
you most likely know what media you have put in your drive, I've already
met people who thought they were using CD while it was a DVD... Also, in
the isometric perspective the text helps (subjectively) to define the
perspective. Also, for some reason I don't know, upstream default (gnome
icon theme) does that distinction as well.

Do you think those reasons are enough?
