No, the icons looks different across themes. Hence the whole notion of

But a given theme is not available universally, not even with the same
toolkit, I guess?

Indeed, it isn't. Although there's always the standard theme for GNOME (Adwaita) and the latest Ubuntu theme, we can look at those.

I'm not sure how that's important, though.

On GTK, we're already there. Since 22.2, apparently. Only we haven't
been paying attention to keeping this feature in proper maintenance.
I'm asking people to think whether we_want_  that.  That we are one
leg there doesn't yet mean we decided to do that consciously.  You are
suggesting to make that a policy, and that's a serious decision, IMO.

First of all, I'm suggesting we fix how the icons look in the GTK build.

Then you are welcome to discuss whether macOS and Windows could use something like that. And whether they should. Since you're skeptical of this approach from the outset, I'd rather bow out of that discussion.
