To be fair, the std. risc os tool sprites do represent their actions quite well once you know what they are (iconize aside). On Mac OS simmilar icons appear when you hover over the coloured blobs.

However, one thing you seem to be missing is that the position of the icons/blobs/whatever is just as important as what they look like. This also helps in the case of colour blind people.

PS. I'm working on a nice, clean, stylish but simple toolset atm. I'll see if it develops into anything useful.
