Hi Thomas and Benoit,
I'm open to the idea. Lets investigate this a bit more seriously, what
roles do you have in mind?

In regards to big and small, Microsoft addressed this issue by
allowing the an author to include icons of various sizes (eg. 16x16,
32x23, 64x64, etc). The widget engine then intelligently selects the
appropriate icon based on the available size for the display context.

Kind regards,
Marcos
