I have a few comments (#1 most important):
    1. scaled icons absolutely suck if small (getting nice 16x16 icons
from 32x32 or 64x64 is likely to produce ugly icons). Good icons are
pixel-perfect and scaling is not the way to get them.
    2. I don't plan to support rendering ARGB icons at this time (see
    3. When X has support for ARGB (and rendering of them), this
property will be a problem because the WM will have to download the data
and then upload the image or the data for rendering. This wouldn't be a
problem if we just have pixmaps in the structure.
    4. If the wm doesn't process the icon data, sharing the icons is
possible if client uploads the data to the server.

... GUI: WPS.
