Now I'm not sure if this applies to icon sizes (maybe it doesn't as it's a  
UI feature) but *a lot* of the HTML5 effort is about defining what to do  
when people make mistakes. Otherwise market leaders get a competitive  
advantage and the others have to invest resources into figuring out what  
the market leader does in case of errors.
