As I understand, 'sets' top-level folder is for consistent set of icons. 
Like USA-Government.

"Theme" folder you treat as thematic, not theme in the sense of uniform 
layout. So my few icons from "gis" subfolder should be moved to 
appropriate subfolders. Like nurse.svg to "health". Is this correct?
