just to keep your eye on one of the phrases Alex wrote, I remove most of this mail:

So I would take this position as an expert's view.
Perhaps it would be possible for Alex to attend the SC call when this topic is discussed.
It is a no-brainer : either ask in MS writing, consult an attorney for
each territory of interest (expensive no doubt, and possibly
unsatisfactory, with fairly heterogeneous answers), or just plain don't
use MS's stuff.
PS: If Microsoft considers the icons to close or minimize a window as belonging to their product
icons (they are icons of their product Windows XP/Vista/7), it's hard to avoid them.
