Good point. In such a case, we might use one of the following options:


(1) <text> and <icon> as child elements of <display>

Different text for each icon:

<descriptorset>
    <ex:wcag>AA</ex:wcag>
    <ex:mok>true</ex:mok>
    <display>
      <text>Everything on example.com is wcag aa compliant</text>
      <icon src="http://authority.example.org/wcag.png" />
    <display>
    <display>
      <text>Everything on example.com is mok compliant</text>
      <icon src="http://authority.example.org/mok.png" />
    <display>
</descriptorset>

Same text for all icons:

<descriptorset>
    <ex:wcag>AA</ex:wcag>
    <ex:mok>true</ex:mok>
    <display>
      <text>Everything on example.com is wcag aa and mok compliant</text>
      <icon src="http://authority.example.org/wcag.png" />
      <icon src="http://authority.example.org/mok.png" />
    <display>
</descriptorset>

or

<descriptorset>
    <ex:wcag>AA</ex:wcag>
    <ex:mok>true</ex:mok>
    <display>
      <text>Everything on example.com is wcag aa and mok compliant</text>
      <icon src="http://authority.example.org/wcag.png 
http://authority.example.org/mok.png" />
    <display>
</descriptorset>


(2) <displaytext> along with an @icon attribute:

Different text for each icon:

<descriptorset>
    <ex:wcag>AA</ex:wcag>
    <ex:mok>true</ex:mok>
    <displaytext icon="http://authority.example.org/wcag.png">Everything 
on example.com is wcag aa compliant</displaytext>
    <displaytext icon="http://authority.example.org/mok.png">Everything 
on example.com is mok compliant</displaytext>
</descriptorset>

Same text for all icons:

<descriptorset>
    <ex:wcag>AA</ex:wcag>
    <ex:mok>true</ex:mok>
    <displaytext icon="http://authority.example.org/wcag.png 
http://authority.example.org/mok.png">Everything on example.com is wcag 
aa and mok compliant</displaytext>
</descriptorset>


(3) <displayicon> along with its @src attribute and text:

Different text for each icon:

<descriptorset>
    <ex:wcag>AA</ex:wcag>
    <ex:mok>true</ex:mok>
    <displayicon src="http://authority.example.org/wcag.png">Everything 
on example.com is wcag aa compliant</displayicon>
    <displayicon src="http://authority.example.org/mok.png">Everything 
on example.com is mok compliant</displayicon>
</descriptorset>

Same text for all icons:

<descriptorset>
    <ex:wcag>AA</ex:wcag>
    <ex:mok>true</ex:mok>
    <displayicon src="http://authority.example.org/wcag.png 
http://authority.example.org/mok.png">Everything on example.com is wcag 
aa and mok compliant</displayicon>
</descriptorset>
