I started to collect all the icons/symbols for our maps in the svn-directory 
http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/share/map-icons/.  This directory 
should contain all needed icons. If there are icons missing in there, please 
add them.
An Overview page with all these Icons can be found at 
The mappaint-plugin in josm already uses these icons too. And gpsdrive 
too, ...
I also have build two debian package which containe and install these icons to 
They are called 
So my suggestion would be to change the osm.xml to retrieve the icons from 
this directory. 

Does that sound like a good start/plan?
