I don't really think it's necessary. We screwed up, but it will be messy  
to put these back. I think the only products that did anything with these  
classes were things like the external file implementations etc, and they  
really just want the getIcon approach back. Maybe have the classes  
attached directly, so they can be used for things like having certain  
types be a different color (which is arguably a sane use case).

As I see it, if you're capable of customizing and changing this CSS,  
chances are that you are advanced enough to handle the new approach easily  

I have no particular preference either way, though.
