That's over engineering in its finest I guess. you have only 2 states 
for a package and 4 icon sets?
As I see it
1) blue gear = design time package.
2) Green arrow = run time package.
everything else is not needed.
If an overlay is shown then that state is part of the package if not 
then it is not. This leaves one icon state with no meaning ee. no 
overlay is shown.
it would make more sense to me to change the crossed gear to design time 
but not installed or something and this has already been taken care off 
by the list boxes so you have two states to many.
