Well, we've come there for pure COIL design, so it's our goal)
There are no other ways to keep such tough minimal design - single width wire and no fills gives 2 colors per icon, less than 8 colors in palette.

People changing the colors in icons for themselves? Such things usually aren't pursued by most people and usually most just use icon theme pack as is and choose one based on their personal preferences.
The main reason FreeCAD icons gain it's weight and then heavily bright/saturated colors
That is not correct. Freecad provides two overriding color shemes you can set in the preferenses. However, as it uses QT for its UI the whole style of the application and color depends on system settings. So every Linux distro has different UI style and colors. For windows IMHO there is a default one shipped, but with some technical knoweledge (and without programming) one could also change styles to infinite numbers.Besides the fact that it diverges from the actual use (users usually work in one preferred color scheme, which is selected once),
FreeCAD backgrounds are limited with only 2 hoar colors by default to switch between.
So, maybe, outline design is a bit excess for that finite conditions.
Current status is all commands (from default set of workbenches) located on toolbars should be supported in FreeCAD 0.18. Including toggle ones and buttons with menus. That is when an icon theme pack is provided as a binary resource file:
Well, now we know why.
It is kinda mainstream, so everybody tries to go there =)
