Not sure about that - the context in metadata is necessary, so that the
script knows where to put the icon - having 48x84 icon labelled as
scalable is necessary for the script to know which objects to keep and
which to delete when generating the scalable SVG.

The context in metadata is in description not in identifier (jimmac's
decision). The label for 48x48 is scalable not #scalable.

I'll create explanatory screen-casts soonish (hopefully today). Btw. the
only one thing you could mess up if you create the icon using
echo-new-icon is the scalable icon label - the rest is checked (i.e. you
cannot enter wrong or none context). Well, you could make a typo in the
icon name, but that cannot be checked by the scripts :-D 

I attach fixed (for the one canvas workflow scripts) version. The
concerns I had about the icon itself (save for the shadow and tallness)
[1] still stand. The darker blue you used is better, but still not
perfect - it should contrast with the icon in 48x48 and smaller sizes
and thus making it better recognisable against various backgrounds (e.g.
the 22x22 or 16x16 is really hard to recognise) and in echo it should be
generally darker than the icon fills.
