Stock icons are just fallbacks. I don't know every icon name, but what I'd say
is: find a theme wich provide a (good looking) icon for this. I currently use
tango (wich is non-free because of CC license) but I hope at one time there
will be free good looking themes too.

Imho, .desktop files should be provided by applications, not by Thunar. I
don't have much feeling about this, but I don't want to clutter thunar package
with stuff dedicated to apps non Xfce related. (I guess apps maintainer may
feel the same about maintaining files for a file manager they dont use).
