The caret indicators with icon overhaul become inharmonious to the text size:
It's planned (at some future point) to
- either get rid of the caret indicators and use 'movement' pack carets
- or even going further and get rid of indicator as special treatment altogether and rely on 20x20 dp canvas everywhere and leave it up to developer in accordance with designer to special size treatment
Nevertheless, the caret indicators are currently used exclusively in OOUI widget context with the most widely used dropdown down caret.
And with that aligning it to the new guidelines result in inharmonious, jarring looking appearance above.
My proposal is //to stay with the current caret indicator as special case//, as we are offering a more aligned to principles in 'movement' pack anyways that will also be used in places like MinveraNeue. And when we're going to tackle above options we're going to remove this special case.
