It depends on what we want to do with it. The speed-dial case is the "icon" into the browser space.
But we could imagined we have a mini-app with the minimized mode when it is an icon. An app can be a full-fledged something or just maybe a simple cache of the page when you drag/drop the link and the icon for this page or just a link.

Tim, What do you expect about the icons? 

* reopen in a browser?
* be a page by itself?
* does it work offline?

SVG for icons yes definitely. It makes sense.
The group Webapps or maybe the new following CG?
