That would be great - at least to get colibre_svg, breeze_svg and
elementary_svg packaged and provided to the users as an "experimental"

Yes, definitely.. for now. Our SVG rendering is not perfect so let's
do it step by step.

No. PNG by default then once we decide SVG is good enough, we get rid
of PNG and use SVG for everything.

That would just complicate things and prolong the status quo.

They are, but currently this is done by the icon designer.

Yes, when using OpenGL, scaling is done with shaders on the GPU
(that's not fixed function HW however.  It's a program - there is no
fixed function hardware for 3D anymore in modern GPU design).
