You are getting it wrong (again). Please read this attentively: WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT LICENSES. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT MORALITY. I put it as capitalized not to shout at you, but to make you actually read it.
Noone ever said icons were published illegally. What Oxygen guys actually wrote is "We know you can do it. But please don't until it's finished and ready to be used". This is neither attack, nor sign of non-openness -- as Nathan tried to repesent it. This is a pure human thing, not a legal case. This is about people talking to each other, having respect for each other and collaboration.
This is where Nathan failed. And I would like him to either start doing researches and talking to people or stop giving his non-GPL rants for articles.
P.S. If I was a Tango artist, I would feel angry about being mentioned in opposition to Oxygen project. They are all friends.
