There are two things to figure out here:
- "cosmetic" may be high priority if we consider that the proper sense
of the word should be forbidden. The default theme has no problems, but
gnome-themes are installed *by default* and is simple to use, so it's
like it was default.  We should expect more than half the users use
gnome-themes, and Gutsy will be an important regression for them (no
need for Compiz when you base icons are blurry). The first impression of
the release will be: "Ubuntu is not able to guarantee a basic clean
interface from a version to another." Whatever the new features can be
in other domains.

- why gnome-themes use 22x22 icons when Human uses 24x24? I can't find
any reason to this, and I don't know whether it was the case in previous
versions or whether it has changed. Using 24x24 icons may not be a
workaround if the design is made to accept it. Asking the developer who
made the change somewhere (in the icons or in the theme) could help to
choose a solution. Changing the many icons involved (including Ubuntu's
own software ones) will require many uploads to gutsy-updates, more
likely to bother users later.
Why do you tell "the workaround doesn't look right"? Since it's used
with Human.
