Default Can we get track icons to help colorblind users like me?

The track color-coding is great, but a lot of the colors are too similar for many colorblind engineers to correctly distinguish between when productions get complex and have a wide variety of instruments. One of my favorite boards is actually the SSL Duality for the simple reason that I can label my channels with instrument icons, which is very helpful for me to be able to tell where things are at a glance since using colors isn't really a viable option.

I know Reaper and Logic have implemented this feature very well, and I much prefer Pro Tools workflow, but when sessions get complex it makes me consider switching to a DAW that can provide this feature for me. I don't think this would be too difficult to implement, and could easily be a hideable option much like I/O, Inserts, Sends, etc.
