And, as per Jody's suggestion, that's exactly how they work in GeoSilk:

Where possible we use the Silk metaphor (for server, database, file,
etc) and overlay it with the common GIS metaphor (map, vector, raster,
etc). We seem to be in basic agreement for map and raster metaphors,
but we're still having trouble nailing down a vector one (which is a
pretty tough one given how abstract the concept is). GeoSilk uses
Jody's uDig metaphor while Robert's GIS icons use something more akin
to GeoSilk's line icon.
