The icon isn't meant to show what type of object it is, it is meant to show whether it is:

switch (flags & ObjectValueFlags.OriginMask) {
case ObjectValueFlags.Property: source = "property"; break;
case ObjectValueFlags.Type: source = "class"; global = string.Empty; break;
case ObjectValueFlags.Method: source = "method"; break;
case ObjectValueFlags.Literal: return "md-literal";
case ObjectValueFlags.Namespace: return "md-name-space";
case ObjectValueFlags.Group: return "md-open-resource-folder";
case ObjectValueFlags.Field: source = "field"; break;
case ObjectValueFlags.Variable: return "md-variable";

we probably just shouldn't be using the "class" icon at all and using something else...

We may add a type-kind property in the future. In any case this is an ENH.
