I'm including the favicon strawman proposal from this morning below.

The purpose is to illustrate what kinds of elements should be really
part of the structure of requirements eventually suggested, in line
with the proposal I made at [1].

1. http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-wsc-wg/2007May/0165.html

Elements marked with an asterisk (*) would be the bare minimum we'd
aim at for an FPWD.
