Keep the class names around for one release (in the code), but turn off  
the CSS, put generated.css in the plone_deprecated dir. Not perfect, but  
good enough for people to retrofit it onto a site, should it be needed. I  
doubt anybody outside of Plone uses the CSS implementation of this, though  
- getIcon is much simpler inside a particular content type.

Yes please. I have always wanted to be able to have the  
image_thumb/preview etc be the icons for content types when used in bigger  
sizes (a 16x16 thumbnail is of very little use, though - have to be at  
least 64x64 to make sense :)
