An animating *something* in the top right is good, but I don't think it *has* to be an ugly, boxy button. I loved the Orbit theme for NS6 in large part because it included a throbber that looked decent and wasn't rectangular.
IMHO, using an envelope/wheel/pen&paper/rolodex in that area would be great, since it would make each ap more distinctive, yet consistent. Consistency would be even better if they could be animated similarly, with lightly shaded (and thinner than in NS4) shooting stars passing in front and behind them. I think that would confuse very few people, and the overall aesthetic gain would win some converts.
