--- Comment #5 from Sierk Bornemann <sierkb at gmail.com> ---
The SVG format can be preferable to more easily support higher resolutions or larger icons and hence favicons.
There's no reason *not* to use SVG for icons/favicons. SVG scales well for all resolution types and is supported in all browsers back to IE9.
Therefore, please implement full and full-colored SVG favicon support via rel="icon" rather than having it limited for "pinned tabs" only and rather than requiring a rel="mask-icon" attribute.

For instance:
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.svg">
<link rel="icon" href="favicon.svg" type="image/svg+xml">
