Perhaps we should find something to put in the shield. The thing is we 
don't want a standard number there since that would lock the icon to 
that version. The icons (as discussed in the bug report for the 
redesign) should be timeless; locking them to a standard breaks that. 
The navigation icons should be something that we can always reference 
the same, without needing to update with every revision of a spec (no 
matter how long it may take for a revision to occur.)
