When releasing a new theme, please include an icon template .psd or whatever file type you are working with in order to help users create their own custom icons for third party apps to fit the theme design. An example would be the fall theme, prado theme, or halo theme.
A basic design template with transparency could be layered over a current icon.png to create a custom icon in no time. Even if just a way of adding a glossy look to icons or special edges.
This would cut back on requests for other people to design them as new apps are released among other things.
I would certainly benefit from it and not have to wait or ask others to create something I can now do even with my very limited artistic skills.
This is just a suggestion, but I believe it would help the community and spark increased involvement that would otherwise remain stagnant.

It would also be nice if they remembered to include a Generic.png that would replace the icon for any non-specifically iconed applications, so the screen would at least look like coherent.
