    Fair point, but do you have any solutions you would propose? Any shared affordances or mental models that people might have developed?

    In reference to one of the discussions in here, instant saving is still something very new to people. Seeing the save explicitly happen creates a security for the user and assures them. I work with teachers and students, and even though we instantly save, and have informed the users, having an explicit "saving..." state almost always tests better. A little off topic of the icon case, but having a save function, at least for now, is still very valuable. Of course after a while products needs to dictate this change and press through the discomfort and feedback, knowing when and where to remove it is difficult. It's a gradual change like anything else.
