For drakx, I think it should be considered.

I don't think the default icon themes should be changed. Using the
upstream default icon themes in KDE and GNOME, respectively, is the
easiest/most compatible way to go.

Bear in mind that apps in either DE expect an icon with a certain
name/size, having a 3rd party theme isn't ideal and might produce
problems, missing icons... etc.

However it can be packaged in the repos, for anyone who wants to use it.
