Funny, I just had the exact same idea a few minutes ago. I was about to suggest it then I found this report. :-D

I agree, the revolution icon was fine when it was alone, but now it does not seem to relate to the groove icon.

Maybe the axis color should be the same brownish color as the solid's edge instead of red. It kind of clashes as red is the color for material removal.

It would be worth trying to offset the black rectangle from underneath the shape like for the Pad icon.

maybe black axis color.

It seems to me like light red color on pocket and groove shows material removal, and dark red shows sketch underneath. Pad and revolve have Black sketch underneath, so maybe axis should be black

you can try to offset rectangle - I was not successful - it looked bad every time I tried. Another idea would be to remake pad icon not to have offset.

I also had the idea of adding arrows to all 4 icon, that would point in direction extrusion is happening in. pad has arrow up, pocket arrow down, revolve and groove have arrow going in one side.

While we are on the subject for pad/pocket/revolve/groove, I must say that icon for "Leave Sketch" command (Sketch (or Part Design) >> Leave sketch) incredibly reminds me on pad command. Maybe it should be changed.
