I don't see this a appropriate for the 4.4 releases, although issue of an
indistinct application icon is certainly present--it is just too late in that
branch release cycle to be changing it.

So, I like the idea of lifting the LibreOffice 5 design layout from the about
banner as the core of the primary application icon! No confusion there.

Agree it would be nice if the bit level and the branch could be displayed as
you have done. The Yellow for the release and green for bitness reads well. But
think the symbology for the 5.x would probably not be needed.

Down side to this is having to generate a release specific icon for each--but
once started should be simple enough to maintain.
