When we make a WebBlock or an Action, we can't change the icon for it(gear wheel and orange ball by default).
 
But in RichWidgets Application, there are valious icons used for each WebBlock and Action!
 
Changing icon freely and easily for WebBlock or Action is very useful because it helps us to avoid long name and to know the feature of the WebBlock or Action intuitively.
We can assign custom icons for actions created using extensions(from integration studio). It would be good if we provide similar capability for the actions created in Service Studio as well.

Please don't....

If you need to work in another eSpace (not created by you) you first need to read the manual which icon means what.

And everybody thinks 'his icon' is clear enough :)

This can be very handy indeed. Currently it is only possible with actions from extensions, but it would be quite handy if it's possible for "normal" actions as well.

@Evert: this also goes for naming conventions, vusual formatting, etc. That's why companies have programming manuals :).

In Platform 9... you can. Both on Actions (which give a lot of meaning to your flow) but also in Webblocks, which provide very good context when viewing your User Interface structure (in the tree)
