Getting smaller icon is relevant in the case of the scaling. I do not think refactoring image caches from icons to multiresolution images will make code much cleaner - at the end we will have to extract images from the multiresolution image to repack them into different multiresolution image because the base size of the image will not be the same and it does matter in how they will be scaled on the different screens. And we still need to extract both images because sometimes small resolution image looks not like the large resolution one and for a reason - so small resolution image is not blurred by the small detail on the large icon when scaling on the low resolution screen.
