Colour vs non-colour is a good start, but the icons must have
different shapes because not only is colour/non-colour crappy for
accessiblilty, even non-disabled people will have to look more
closely, as the human brain is good at shape distinction. This is why
most of the icons are distinctinctly differently shapes.
