Some icon meanings may not scale internationally

Description (last modified by )
This issue is to keep track of icons that may not scale internationally.
For example, the "boot" icon for boot manager looks nice, but is totally non-suggestive in most languages other than English, because it is the iconification of a homonym (I think) that's not existent in other languages.
The icon might even be offensive in some parts of the world. Not sure about this, but see e. g. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/2008/dec/15/georgebush-iraq
Perhaps the guidelines of other projects can help, e. g. http://developer.gnome.org/hig-book/3.5/icons-design.html
