Yes, they are harder to create.But I think it's better to do it how we
like it, even if it's harder. Easy way is not always the best. But I
agree, that it could stop some people from contributing, who otherwise
would.

Actually, I think that isometric icons works best of the various 3D
looking perspectives in small sizes - much better than the slightly
tilted table perspective we use for action icons. 16x16 is however too
small for all 3D perspectives...
