From our draft HIG [1]: "It is essential your application has a
256x256px size. With the advent of high-DPI displays, a 512x512px
variant is recommended." So it probably makes sense to require 256x256
for applications installed by default. (The software center can be way
more lenient.)

That's getting bigger and bigger as we speak!

I'm okay with requiring 128x128 for default applications, but 256x256 might be asking too much...
I'm not sure what to do. I guess have 256x256 as MUST and 512x512 as SHOULD?

Do you have statistics on apps shipping 256x256 icons in Fedora right now? How many are there? How many non-gnome apps do that?
