Tab, You’re right if we take as given that: 1. FF and Chrome will finally fix the bug with handling different size attributes (hopefully they will) 2.standard aspect ratio will be 1:1 (although maybe it can be different) 3.the layout of hi-res favicon will differ from a standard (16x16/32x32) favicon. Compare those: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1830800/temp/icons.jpg
Generally seems like it could work. But on other hand the battle for high-res icons has been won by Apple’s Touch Icons. Almost sure that more websites have a touch icon than an icon with a size attribute exceeding 128px. Around 20% has an apple icon from top-10000.
What do you think could be the fallback scenario (in case there is no proper icon)? Generated by browser?
In a case someone wanna see grabbed touch icons for top-1000 website: https://yadi.sk/d/CZgnIW6UZxpTg 
When I see it my sense of beauty says no to any API;)
