Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't one of reasons we have shipped PNGs for 
this long because the small sizes (16x16) are too ugly if not manually 
cleaned and sharpened after being scaled?
Is this no longer an issue, or do we not care about small icon sizes anymore?

I always thought SVG icon-sets therefore would use PNGs when available and 
only use SVGs for unavailable sizes.
