  It is necessary to edit general principles on the illustrations. For
  example, if icons are used, these they will be:

Yes, this is important, and is part of "predictable interaction" - what is
called consistent navigation in WCAG 1.0.

  - The color in them will be sufficiently readable (it contrasts, etc.)

In particular, use a small number of colours, that contrast well. Perhaps
using different colours for the foreground of different icons is a good idea,

  - It will be kept in mind the size.

Yes, size is important. It would be nice to use scalable icons - I discussed

  Also, it is important that if the guidelines are illustrated, serve as
  example of "good practice".

And it is important that the guidelines are an example of good practice as
