I think it's impossible without editing of the source code of the Thunar.
But why does it must? Changing icons higher the text is possible. What do you need else and why?

I working with pictures a lot. Thunar displays the thumbnails very fine. Often I work with pictures with same content, but in different type, i.E. foo.cr2, foo.jpg, foo.png and foo.bmp.

The thumbnails always are the same and so I have to read the filename to check the file-type everytime.

I think it will be fine to use diffrent textcolors based by the file extension. I will be faster.

You can bind the different file extensions to the different file types. Is it satisfy you?

No, because I work with thumbnails, not with icons.
