I'm inclined to say the spec should just make the icon selection entirely
undefined unless we have clear reason to believe we need interop here. 
Browsers won't be picking the same icons no matter what, since they might be
displaying them at different sizes or such, so why do we need to try for any
interop at all?  It's only a display issue, not author-visible.  Just let them
pick icons according to whatever algorithm they like if they're given multiple
ones.  If authors do something silly like give two entirely different icons at
the same size, it's not going to hurt anything much if different browsers pick
different ones, it will just be slightly confusing.

This is closely related to bug 13107.  If the decision were to make which icon
to pick entirely UA-defined, that would resolve both of these bugs.
