Use these icons as new mimetype icons

Hello,

Since in LO 6.1 we will be shipping LO with Colibre as the default icon set and Tango is not the default LO icon set anymore, I wanted to open a bug to see if the Marketing team is open to changing the mimetype icons from the current ones to icons with a refreshed more flat design that conform better to current design aesthetics and that look more at home in current UI paradigms.

Namely, I would propose that we adopt the Colibre icons that are present in the current attachment.
If necessary, we should adapt the color gradient to follow the LO guidelines, but the icons themselves clearly follow the branding (they just don't have gradients)

The Colibre icons should be used in Windows borders, and also in file managers at different icon sizes, as well as in Taskbars/docks.

I don't see any issue in using a more consistent look of the icons with Colibre look and feel. On the contrary, I consider the change an opportunity for a more comprehensive announcement, which is not limited to the Colibre theme.

Elementary and Breeze, at least these two, use own MIME type icons. While I prefer the really great icons from Christoph Noack [1], I can life with Italo's statement. There are many more proposals for "better" icons [2].
