This is why, in the OpenTRAC spec, I proposed a hierarchy.  I don't have the
list in front of me, but a bike might be something like 1.2.4 (land,
vehicle, bicycle) and a recumbent might be 1.2.4.1.  The advantage is that
you don't need all 60,000 icons - you can still tell what something is as
long as you know the basic category.
