  I think that the main interest of this will not only be to make a
buffer pretty, but to show information in ways which are easier or
more comfortable to understand.
  For instance:
 - showing completion status of a task: icons could form a progress
bar, like [XXXX..], green if >50%, red elsewhere
 - marking the tasks with a color from a gradient which represents
something; for instance: the more recently you have clocked a task,
the redder (hotter) it is
- the amount of children/text a collapsed tree has (a big lack I have
noticed in org-mode). The icon could try to offer a
mini-representation of whether the tree has little content, some
content, or much content
- in agenda view, an „only icons“ view would be able to show much
information in little space. For instance, the distribution of
projects/categories/tags in a month

Just some ideas.
