Comment (by youknowriad):

 Hi Friends and thanks for your work here.

 I discovered these new designs recently and I have some feedback to share.

  - In some screens like the post list, the fact that the default buttons
 have the same background as the regular screen background make them look
 like disabled inputs for me, it's very hard to understand that these are
 in fact buttons.

  - In Gutenberg, we didn't try new button designs to stay consistent with
 Core, so I was really surprised when I saw these buttons commited to Core
 without trying to bring consistency in Gutenberg. What's the plan for

  - With the current button size and without any borders or elevation, the
 primary buttons in the settings screen look very weird to me. They feel a
 bit "disconnected" from the design of the rest of the page.
