If I understood that correctly, the proposed icon display is meant for 
stuff like icons for a specific element -- for example, for a paragraph. 
The spec could have been a bit more specific about what the result 
should be; I guess icon could be displayed in the paragraph margin.

I still think we need a standard way to specify icons for whole pages 
and/or sites. I vote for multiple <link rel="icon" 
href="url-to-icon.ext" />'s as there're already browsers supporting that.
