Hi All,
I share Thomas' point of view that defining a role for icons is a good idea.
I also see the point of defining if the "role" should be mandatory or not.
If it's not mandatory, what should be the default behaviour?
I also would like to discuss the possibility of defyining a "degradation" path for icons and roles.
For example imagine the widget creator build a package with only one icon with "screenshot" role.
The same image could be used (with resizing and format conversion automatically provided by the widget framework) for "small" and "favicon".
In this way we don't force widget creators to build icons for all roles... it wil be also possible to extend the total set of roles in specific widgets implementations without breaking compatibility (and keeping a personalised look for each widget).
 
 
    Igor.

	 Hello Beno´t,
	
	 I like the idea of the role, and it's an elegant way to solve some issues linked with multiple icons needs (big, small, etc...) So yes, why not define some standards roles, and if role is not defined, it's a default role which is taken?

		Hi All
		About the icon element, we have not stated what the role should be but I can think of the following elements:
		
		>>>>>
		<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" 
		        id="http://example.org/widget" 
		        version="2.0 Beta" 
		        height="200" 
		        width="200">
		..../...  
		  <icon role="small" src="icons/widget-icon.png" />
		 <icon role="favicon" src="icons/widget-favicon.png" />
		 <icon role="screenshot" src="icons/widget-screenshot.png" />
		.../...
		</widget> 
		<<<<<
		
		Best Regards, 
		Benoit
