Can you link to them?

I'm not sure I know what you mean by that.

I meant give an URL where these icons can be seen.

Hmmm, you're right. I see two approaches.

1. Devise a scheme that provides the following icon priorities:

a. Personal icons
b. Theme icons
c. Emacs built-in icons

2. Use the theme as I had proposed. The user personalizes the icon not
  by adding their icons to image-load-path, but rather by adding their
  icons to the GNOME theme. We document this.

I suspect that the latter is more germane to a GNOME user.

Yes. But it would mean having different strategies fro GTK Emacs and Emacs compiled without GTK. Maybe that isn't such a big deal. I suspect users of GTK Emacs would want it to change as the theme changes. If we can agree on Gnome icons, I'm all for it, we can always fall back to builtin icons if those aren't available.
