IMHO i don't like those smiles as default, having those as another theme sure. Patches are welcome.

Hey pedro I was talking with ivanka about it and I was supposed to subscribe otto and maybe they will have something for 11.04 better than the current ones might not be the exact ones form the design blog but would be more polished than the ones in empathy at the moment.

Brand guidelines are not interface guidelines, and brand colors are not necessarily good interface colors. The smileys used on design.canonical.com are pictograms, which are fun but work best at sizes much larger than the typical Empathy smiley.
