Why not just text?

I think this is really bad. No icons or logos' should ever just use
text (or even characters at all); it's too hard to distinguish if more
and more apps do this. An icon should not be read. It's supposed to be
an image which you combine with something very quickly. Also, it
should be a SVG vector file. Gnome is supposedly moving to a vector
graphics only desktop.
Some more suggestions. Don't look at them as finished images. Think instead that we are in a creative phase. I have also added them to the web page I mentioned earlier. If someone has suggestions just mail me the images and I will put them there.
