Nonsense. The theme is not the icons and the icons are not the theme.
And merely packaging two things in the same compressed file does NOT
force them to be under the same licenses, and any interpretation that
it does is simply silly.

You have permission to distribute the theme and the icons. Whether you
distribute them together or apart is irrelevant.
