Well currently they aren't so either the contents of the 
hicolor-icon-theme package should be moved to the filesystem package, 
which it won't since its sortof bogus to have these dirs on a cmdline 
only server / firewall. Or applications using these dirs must have a 
"Requires: hicolor-icon-theme", which really isn't a problem as they 
need special scriptlets to handle icons properly already.
