Yes I also want to have a basic list and have an extended list which 
list a lot of icons, so there is a standard way to describe an icon, to 
avoid problems like one set describing cake as :cake: another as :cake 
or (^).
It might be a good idea to have several sublists,so clients can disco 
for supported sets in other clients to make sure send emoticons can be 
rendered at the other side.

I like so see categories in JEP-38 so big sets can be displayed in 
smaller subsets, for example there are too many gadu-gadu emoticons to
display in a way they can be easily found.
