While I can understand the desire to have some sort of graphical 
continuity with icons, there are particular ones I haven't been fond of, 
mostly because they aren't very intuitive.


Preflight Verifier
Shape-Polygon-Arc -- mostly because they seem so dead-looking
the entire collection of PDF Tools

Although they're rather small, I have wondered if there was some way to 
include keyboard shortcuts in at least some of the icons. The text frame 
icon has an A in it, but could just as easily have a T. Such letters 
might even help one recognize what the icon is supposed to represent.
