Count me in as a Yes.  I think it would not only reduce the visual noise, but 
it would look slick, and make Org even more fun to work with.

The biggest thing for me though, is that they should degrade gracefully.

Subject: [Orgmode] pretty icons in org buffers

I've been re-entering my life data into Orgmode after about a year of just 
using a palm pilot. So I would like to contribute something to the org 
community again. A while back I wrote some elisp code for displaying bitmap 
icons as overlays in org buffers (screenshots at 
http://dto.github.com/notebook/linkd.html )
As you can see I also drew a bunch of .xpm icons for emacs to display in the 
buffers. I would be happy to contribute these icons and rework that 30 or 40 
lines of overlay code back into a nice little org extension.
After a discussion on the #org-mode IRC channel, it seems like there might be a 
demand for this. We have at least 2 people who want it. :)

What do people think of icons in org buffers? This could actually reduce visual 
noise and increase comprehension. Think of priorities being colored circles 
instead of [#A] [#B] [#C]. Or TODO and DONE and CANCELED being represented by 
different checkboxy icons.
