FWIW when I look at my nautilus desktop (with a functional
gsf-office-thumbnailer installed from libgsf which may not be the
default experience) I end up with a mixture of isometric echo icons for
files that cannot be previewed and flat preview icons of ones that can
be, e.g. .pdf, .odt, etc. which is somewhat unfortunate. Though that may
more long-term suggest a need for a way to (hand-wavingly) consistently
propagate a transformation for such previews than an argument against
isometric icons.
