This is just not true. The way the automation works, is that it doesn't
use all of the detail of the original icon. It does add a little more
work to creating the icons, but not as much as actually creating an
entirely separate theme. What you do is use certain names for elements
in the icon, and the automation code ignores other elements and only
shows the appropriate paths, for the type of a11y icon needed.

You really should look into what he's doing and how he's doing it,
before you just write it off completely.
