Just a few app icons.
The icon cache is not necessary and you can remove it but they say it reduces RAM usage (for which I have no proof). Its size depends on how many icons the set has. On my system (Debian), it isn't created automatically when I use the set as user.
I will add them provided that (1) they are really app icons (and not just logos) and (2) they aren't hard-coded (so that their corresponding apps use them). Thanks for the links!
Now I'm busy with Qt/KDE/E but I'll come back to nouveGnomeGray.
Done! Sylpheed may still use its hard-coded icon. I chose the Firefox icon for IceCat as I'd done for IceWeasel because both are Firefox and aren't installed beside it.

I'm glad to know that

No, because even if I had time to do so, it would be completely futile. An icon set should consist of USABLE icons, not logos.
I might change the SpaceFM and xfce4-notifyd icons. And if you tell me the exact names of WIFI icons under Openbox, I'll add them too.
The namings of the network icons are all that of Gnome. Please give me the exact names of the WIFI status icons in the gtk-based DE you use! BTW, did you log out and in or updated the icon cache (if you use any) after updating the set?
I know about the logos. The problem is what the actual app or its desktop file uses. As just one example, in all distros I know of, Conky doesn't have any desktop file and there's nothing in its code about an icon.
You seem unsatisfied with SpaceFM and xfce4-notifyd icons. My policy has been not bloating the set with unnecessary icons but using symlinks as far as possible. In many cases, I even don't imitate the original icons but use some that convey the concepts clearly enough.
I updated the set. Are network icons OK for you now?
Some of the apps you mentioned (OpenVPN, PCSX2, PCSXR, Snes9x and Xkill) had no icons. Some others had icon paths in their desktop files and might still use their own icons although the nouveGnomeGray ones exist.
I rely on feedbacks like yours to make this set more complete. So, don't hesitate to tell me if some icons are still missing and please give me their exact names.
You're very welcome. And thank you for giving me a list of missing icons! I'll SURELY add them as soon as I have free time. It may just take a while.
And yes! I'll keep and maintain this set. Why not? Here the situation is not like with GTK3, which always breaks themes.
As for the red color, I can accept a little of red and yellow with gray. They could catch the user's attention when needed.
