This isn't quite true.  The three CSS2.1 bullet styles, for example,
are all different on at least one browser.  I've specced them
specially in Lists such that there is a recommended glyph but browsers
are free to use any graphic that's roughly similar.  I could easily
take a similar approach for the disclosure triangle.
