You have mistook GIF icon with transparency for scaled-down SVG. GIF
icon cannot look better than that and I wonder if it is possible to have
PNG web-page icon.

Yes, the tango! styled fedora logo is awesome but I'd wonder if it would
pass legal. Anyway, this is IMHO not the proper place to ask in the
first place. Since it concerns Fedora logo it should be IMHO asked first
at logo at fedoaproject.org. And only after that, if it is approved, bring
the thing on the art list.
