I don't know if Dan is aware of the Display Density settings, but I
certainly am. They ameliorate the problem he describes, but they do not by
an stretch resolve it.
And I think by defeating the purpose of icons what Dan was probably
trying to point out is that the icons are counter-intuitive, and not
similar to the icons used by other providers for the same functions. After
a couple of months of using them, I was still getting mixed up by them, so
when the option to switch to text was introduced, I jumped on it.
The purpose of icons is to communicate information, if it is not easy
to see what the icon is meant to represent then they are poorly designed.

The very definition of the word 'icon' means that it represents something,
therefore that *IS* the point of an icon. My brain quickly learnt what the
octagon with a bang in it does, what the bin does, what the folder icon
means and what the label icon means.
You can of course have text. See Settings->General. That is also discussed
in the aforementioned video.
