All of those points are clearly understood.

At this point, however, favicons are no longer a WebKit feature, but rather a Safari feature.

(I alluded to this upcoming change in 2014 https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136059#c1)

So if you're looking for SVG favicon support in Safari, you'll need to file with Apple at developer.apple.com.

If you're looking for them in some other browser, you'll need to file in that browser's bug tracker.
