*-icon-theme seems to be the convention right now, but there is no
guideline about this afaik. icon-theme-* might be a good idea, but we
already have gnome-icon-theme, humanity-icon-theme and the likes in our
repos. Unless you want to go on a crusade to change all the icon theme
packages, I'd leave it at that, seems like too much wasted energy to me.
