XF 2.2 Favicons with 2.2

Just looking for clarification.

You can upload a favicon in 2.2's style properties. But that only gives you a 32x32 icon.

1. So by using this style property, you're not covering all your favicon and social icon bases, are you? You'd be missing 16x16 and 48x48 favicons, right? Or is it intended that you put a 48x48 here and let it automatically scale down when smaller ones are needed?

2. And with the 192x192 and 512x512 icons, if you say they are maskable, they will automatically be used on most devices, right? Does this part cover social links like Facebook or Instagram direct messages?

3. What about the safari-pinned-tab.svg version? Is that being covered anywhere?

4. Should you still have a .ico favicon or are the .png versions fine?

5. If you upload them in style properties, they go to /data/assets/. Does it matter if you have no icon files in your root directory? Do the platforms know there are icons in data/assets/ because they are meant to be using the standard icon file names?
