Like Peter, I'm finding the shield without the 5 a little too abstract. Doug, I like your second proposal of the HTML icons: we keep the shield but the angle bracket help the symbol to be understandable enough. -> http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/File:WPD-icon-html-brackets.svg 

I'm ready to make new icons of needed. (Just generate the 32px png along with a clean svg)

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.)
