They are good. One of the main issues is that they have no alpha background, so they won’t work well on the toolbar as-is. Other things is we need to unify all the toolbar icons with a common visual language.
For sure. I am away for the summer, but will have time to organize remaining icons in August.

Brecht: Completely agree here.
These icons, because they use single pixel lines, can only be scaled well at certain increments. They work well with retina displays @2x too, but probably not so much @1.3x
By accent-grave, do you mean the Tilde key? It is used for viewport switching, but only works on Linux atm.
I bet they would, if they wanted to use overwrite. Luckily, it's not an essential feature. Adding objects is.
Ins could be added as well as Shift-A, but not as a replacement. It's on the righthand side of the keyboard, so it's actually slower to access, and many keyboards (laptops, Macs etc) don't have this key at all
In 2.8, with the increased reliance on the Outliner, this would be a good opportunity to update the shortcuts there too. Problem is, manipulating items in the Outliner is inconvenient, because most of the basic shortcuts don't work there.

The mice icons seem fine as-is. Maybe because they are largely hollow, and also because they are not contained within a button, so padding is less of an issue.
Yes, I see the issue. I have inserted a few of the new icons as replacements:
I'm good with using all 16*16 points.

The 3D cursor tool will be removed from Sculpt mode.

I completely agreee with this sentiment. Default color set to red is a good choice too.

Antonio: That makes sense I think. We could even make it so you can pick the note/color in the tool settings, like so:
True that. Another problem is the lack of the Run Script button in Text Editor. Not sure how that happened. I’ll make a patch to fix those two things today.
It will be possible to hide it.

Antonio: Makes sense and sounds good.

Center aligned text should be avoided, as it has none of the advantages of either left or right aligned text. Left aligned text has advantages in that it’s easy to scan the list, but the label gets disconnected from the value, which is a problem, esp with multiple columns. Right aligned text has the advantage that it makes it possible to have configurations with a leading label, such as Scale X, Y, Z in the Transform panel. Plus the advantage of a clear connection between value and label. The ragged-left negative space left when using right-aligned labels is actually a good visual marker for quickly identifying areas in panels, which helps with quickly scanning through properties.

Antonio: The second image shows layers, but here they are renamed to 'Notes', because they don't act like traditional layers anyway, they are just groups of notes, that's all.
In the original concept for this, we thought of combining the 'Specials' menu with Favourites. We discarded that idea though, in favour of making the Specials menu more context sensitive, like a right-click menu.

Rather than using an extra column in the Ouliner, we could highlight the item row itself and give it a prominent different color. This takes up no extra space island will be more prominent and easy to see

For sure. The team members could pick a preferred name, just like Cycles was named by the original developer of it.

The annotation tool could be called just that: 'Annotation Pencil' or simply 'Annotation', although IMO it's a lot less confusing if we simply use the correct names for things. We haven't released 2.8 yet, so we can easily rename the new tool and mode to something more descriptive, rather than re-using an old moniker for something else that doesn't fit.
We should probably do the opposite. 'Grease Pencil' comes from people using grease pencils on their screens for note-taking. So actually Grease Pencil was a perfect name for the old notes feature.
Grease Pencil will most likely not work like it did in 2.7. The reason it worked as it did, was because we didn't have the concept of active tools, which we now do have. Grease Pencil should be ported over to using active tools, so that you don't have to hold down a key to use it, which is tiresome and unergonomic anyway.
How about Shift + I & Shift + O ?
