I fail to understand what is "literal" about my reading and how yours is 
less so, and I'm disappointed that you're turning an honest question 
into "you're (reading it) wrong".

I wouldn't have thought that changing the icons over to the Photon icon 
set would be something we'd do before 57, as that's pretty noticeable.

(To be clear, I'm not arguing that we shouldn't do this stuff prior to 
57 if people are on board with it, but to me this is a surprising 
example of "small changes".)
