Shorter, right?

yep, it would be, unfortunately you would require the java package utils for it:

$ grep -R _iconsdir /etc/rpm
/etc/rpm/macros.jpackage:%_iconsdir    %{_datadir}/icons
/etc/rpm/macros.jpackage:install -D -m 644 %1-32.png $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_iconsdir}/%1.png\
$ rpm -qf /etc/rpm/macros.jpackage

And adding jpackage-utils to BuildRequires just to have the macro is not a good idea; that's why people don't use it.

Maybe we can move the macro somewhere else.
