If you use font awesome or other icon fonts, you have the same icons on all operating systems.
If you rely on Emoji, the user experience will be different on each system, for Apple Emoji are not the same than Android Emoji or Windows Emoji.
As SWT is about integrating properly in the OS, I have the impression that relying on system icons/emojis is more likely to improve user-experience than having a separated set of icons, that's the same on all platforms, but different from all platforms default set.
