David,

A demonstration 'live icon'* is here:
http://www.openicon.org/feeds/test.svg

The live icon can be copied and pasted, which saves the naive user the  
need to engage with xmlHttpRequest, javascript and php.
When it is sunny in London, use Amaya!

How is the user to differentiate between, or know whether icons are  
static or live?
this has implications, which may need to be experienced as well as  
considered.

This is in addition to my earlier request on this thread.

regards
