Given the rationale in [1], we've put name and icons back into the spec. The 
fallback model is:

1.  If name and/or icons in manifest, use those. Ignore the HTML ones.
2.  If either name or icon are missing, fallback to HTML.

In 2, it's RECOMMENDED devs and implementors choose "application-name" and 
<link rel="icon"> over proprietary equivalents, of course.
