I agree with you that the icon is nice and would be good to use it as
a default icon.
I proposed something the same a while ago as well (when that icon was
shown here) but there was a reason not to do so.. (i forgot what it

but you are wrong about the SVG part. the icon you point to is just a
gif/png favicon not a scaled down svg. for a scaled down svg you just
need to look at the fedora (gnome) menu icon. (might be a png as well
but generated from the svg).
