This can probably be done for karmic. But please file a bug report

I fail to see the point in uploading xubuntu-* to Debian for example:
this is really xubuntu-specific, and not really applicable to Debian‽
Indeed, icons and gtk+ themes should be packaged separately, in their
own package (gtk-engines-* and gnome-icon-theme-*), as they are not
xubuntu-specific at all.
