Inconsistent ajax preloader images

The wpspin_dark.gif & wpspin_light.gif images located at wp-admin/images are used as ajax preloaders when updating widgets.
IMHO they do not feel part of the overall WordPress aesthetic.

Looking around in that same folder I found other two images (loading.gif & loading-publish.gif) that are implemented in other parts of the UI for the same behavior.

Having two different preloaders is inconsistent and detrimental to the interface.

The loading.gif & loading-publish.gif were replaced by wpspin_dark.gif & wpspin_light.gif and are not used in WordPress any more. They are in wp-admin/images only for plugins that still use them.
