Whoever the product manager thinking that it is a good idea to use colorless icons is to be blamed. Don't they do a product study? I have heard more negative comments about this than positive feedback. What on earth that they think this is a better idea. I could think that it is more helpful to the color blind users. But why sacrifice the rest of the users? If you want to help the color blind users than make it to be configurable as an option, where other current users have the same colored icons as default.
