I tried to do a quick draft of what you suggested (it's quite quick and

For reference the link to Christoph's icons:
I think both proposals have their advantages - the inverted icons look
quite dark, but are easier to differ from the document icons.

Perhaps it is possible to increase brightness / decreas saturation of the 
icons to have them both approximately in the same darkness?

I don't know if they really follow the general visual language of the

        strange. But you've mentioned that it is a quick draft, of

      * The very dark color of the template icons that seems to be very

that there is no easy decision ... but also having in mind that we need
some more icons, there is no need for a decision right at the moment ;-)
