If the use case for these attributes is strong enough to add special purpose attributes for use with only <link rel=icon> then I dare say that it is strong enough to have a special purpose <icon> element so as to keep user agents from having to deal with nonsense such as <link rel=stylesheet height=32 width=32>

Can't that happen anyway? For example, <link rel="stylesheet
icon16x16"> is just as nonsensical.
