But do the icon sets being offered interfere in any way or are a big burden
to the install files of Libre Office?
IMO,  they're well hidden already, and only people that want to change them
will look for them. Doesn't having them in the suite by default facilitate
the job of maintainers in picking the icon set they prefer (ex. KDE distro
devs picking Breeze, Gnome-based distro devs picking Tango or Sifr, etc).

Either way, I don't believe that backporting to 6.0 is a good idea. It's
already out. Wait for 6.1 and use that plus some polish to the Notebookbar
modules to make a big splash in the 6.1 release and use the extra time to
really polish the icon set if it's going to be used by default.

My take (and the question for tomorrow) on all this goes beyond what
Andreas/Stuart want, which is Colibre on Windows starting with 6.0. In my
opinion we have too many icon themes, most (if not all) not based on actual
requests from the community. We rely on the unmaintained Galaxy as
fallback, provide the totally outdated Tango, and Breeze as a very specific
theme. All these are much better provided as extension, with the additional
benefit that the maintainer has full control over updates.

The suggestion was deliberately done as _one theme_ and not Colibre. But
I'm not so sure that asking the community is the best way since macOS users
have different needs than people on Windows or Linux. And as Stuart wrote
we have a perfect maintainer for Colibre - depending on the plan how this
theme should evolves; providing differently colored variants is the
opposite of my idea; and I'm missing some basic postulates about the design
such as round, colorful, fullsize, with small decorations or whatever.

What I had in mind was to discuss these arguments first in the design
meeting and ask later on the ML. But since people likely not join it
doesn't matter anyway. ;-)

Why not elementary?
