As pointed by the other mail and on IRC that's an upstream choice:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=311339

Some pointers on the folder translation topic too:

Right, but if we think that the idea is good we can suggest the patches
upstream, maybe they are willing to do these changes too.

Upstream may accept an icon they don't use by default. They ship quite a
bunch of icon, not all of them are used on a default desktop. Adding the
icon to the gnome-icon-theme package would be an option, but I would
like to heard from the list if people think we should use a special icon
for that folder.

Let's get the list opinion on that
