I think the [] icon for 'edit source' link (when VE is installed) looks stupid. Other people were just generally confused. Should probably be re-evaluated.
VE itself uses a pencil for the concept of editing, brackets for source editing and eye for visual editing. I think we settled on this unhappily after considering a few different things (T97451 and T116417 look relevant). If you invent a better metaphor, VE team might want to hear about it too
Either way it's probably a good idea for the skin and VE to be consistent. Perhaps you might just remove the brackets icon while keeping the pencil?

Yeah, probably the sanest/easiest approach. And just move the pencil to the container of both edit and edit source so it shows up for both on editsection. And then the eyeball stuff for the cactions links...?
It appears that the pencil icon is sometimes mistaken for a drawing tool: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback/Archive_2017_1#No_easy_way_to_get_back_to_VisualEditor
