I think there are potentially three distinct APIs: 1. Icons 2. Notifications 3. Numeric badge 1 is clearly solved by <link rel="icon"> already. Proposing new solutions is pointless since by the time browsers implement those they might as well implement/fix their <link rel="icon"> handling. 2 already exists The question I see you raising is whether 3 should be tied to 2 or separate. I believe in most native platforms they are tied together, but I agree that they could be separate. More investigative work would be needed to really explore the problem space. +Marcos because he is really good at that kind of investigative work, and might have some idea what FFOS is doing for numeric badges.
