The icon element (http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/#icon0 <http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/> ) has width/height properties which only applies to SVG icons. To me the spec isn't fully clear how to use them. Is it ok for a user agent to ignore the width/height of an SVG icon? IMO it should be since it will be hard to do a consistent "widget desktop manager" with widgets from multiple sources (and therefore possibly with different width/height set) if the widget icons are of different sizes. To me the width/height should just be a guide to the user agent but the user agent should have the choice of scaling to the appropriate size. This is of course also important for widgets intended to run on multiple platforms with different screen sizes.
