These have appeared on various signs at various stations in the past year or two, but NOT system-wide (which would be a fine and welcome addition). They have even used the 'subway' symbol at light rail stations, while a 'light rail' symbol is used at others.

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed this. I think at either Prudential or Symphony, there is the heavy-rail icon used. It irks me!
