If I sounded negative, I do want to apologize. Sorry :)

I think the main problem is that many who replied see those icons are
very fundamental and, being artistically impaired (like me), simply lack
the imagination to come up with other good suggestions. They simply
realized that something they care deeply about might disappear unless
they intervened.

As I said, I would suggest looking at ways to enhance the basic current
layout with the prominent icons instead of degrading those icons to a
form of eye candy. Colors that increase the differences between info,
warning and error would possibly work. Or the same symbol as an
almost fully translucent copy of itself in the background (switched off
for the high contrast modes). I am sure that with the amazing work you
guys put into oxygen, you will be able to find a very good solution. And
if that means that everything stays the same, then you at least know that
the current design is the best it can possibly be :)
