Thanks Alastair.

for an 8px icon??).

No, but very few icons are 8px X 8px - in fact I think most start at 16px
square and go from there
​ (my 8 X 8 was a deliberate strawman). I better understand what the intent
here is now, but I think a bit more wordsmithing may be in order, or a
fuller explanation in an Understanding doc (to come, I know...)​
