Since there is no normative algorithm for the selection of the actual displayed icon, why should the test suite results but so strict. In particular, why does an implementation need to list all icons, if its policy is to select the first one, correct according to the spec, and that matches its needs. For example, one could say:

I'm not sure the first one is always selected. The order is implied by the default icons table but a UA may decide that it prefers PNG over SVG (e.g. for processing requirements) even if it supports both.
