I think it would be much easier to reset everything and then tweak again as compared to unhiding 30 or 40 icons individually.
Whatever, though. I don't know that the issue here is with "suddenly, inexplicably hidden" icons. Sounds more like a theme issue, and possibly a CICAL service book conflict.
We may never know...
Since we know that these strings live forever and for the occasional person who searches, I'm more concerned that some future reader may not realize the implications of using the reset. Also, you don't have to unhide the icons individually. Show all shows all of them.

Not quite missing all icons but select ones. Can't remember how many by default are in the applications folder since I do have a tendancy to move icons around. But those are the ones he noticed so could be others missing as well.
Actually, thinking about it, think you're right that it seems like something else is going on with the OPs phone. Because if he really has a large number of missing icons, I'm not sure how you would accidentally hide a bunch of them without noticing you were doing so. Hopefully, the OP followed NJ's advice to pull the battery and reboot for starters.
