At present, yeah (actually also gnome-icon-theme-symbolic). See also
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=965365 . For F20, we may
wind up just having anaconda carry copies of the icons it wants;
upstream doesn't seem too keen on providing any guarantees that they
won't change appearance at any moment (see
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=963958 ).

If anyone wants a really weird icon bug to try and fix, see
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=964019 .
