This indicates the need dor a system independant standard cursor format.
The CSS specification could make a sugestion about it but is not the
correct place to do so. So it calls for a draft for (web) icons.

Having the support for cursors dropped for the reason "not all user
agents
do support the same icon format" is false. The support for
(background)immages
should be dropped for the same reason, just because it is possible for
an
author to use an image format only supported by 1 or a few user agents.
