Dashicons: Google+ icon does not fit Google branding standards

Received a bug report for this icon:

I mentioned this on Twitter to those involved with the development of dashicons, but want to also post here, in a more 'official' manner.

The dashicon for Google+ could use a small tweak to the position of the '+'.

I will soon begin using the social dashicons on the front-end of my site and would like for them to abide by guidelines set forth. You can compare the Google+ dashicon to the Google+ branding guidelines.

It would be great to see a fix in one of the upcoming WP releases.

Source: ​

Here are the branding guidelines he cited: As per these guidelines, the + in the dashicon is positioned too high.
