I've made a wiki page on my bit [1] containing some of the main
colours from some icons.

As I say on the page, my intention is to have it as part of the icon
tutorial page (similar to the Bluecurve tutorial page [2]) which could
be named Artwork/EchoCreation or something. I think to have the hex
colour values in a table would be useful as well as a GIMP and
Inkscape file.

You're spot on that we need some basic guidelines. I found that little
things like stroke thickness was trial-and-error. It will take time,
