The asset catalog editor does not detect changes in the filenames of the assets.
1. Create iOS project
2. Add icons to the AppIcons icon set
4. Leave asset catalog editor open
5. Rename one of the icon files using the solution pad
* The asset catalog editor still displays the icon
* Simple option: asset catalog editor displays a "missing image" icon/message
* Complex option: IDE automatically fixes the content.json to use the new name
It just seems to me that expecting the editor to detect filename changes that you do behind its back to be a bit... unrealistic.
It seems like this is just a trip down an endless rabbit hole because once you start down this rabbit hole from hell, then you have to also make it work in the multi-catalog editor view when a different catalog is in the open state - because hey, the editor is open, right? Even though that particular Contents.json file isn't open.
And then you need to implement support for updating the Contents.json file when the editor isn't open at all because otherwise it would be inconsistent.

No longer an issue because you can't rename them anymore.
