That's why the broad wording is used that we take a requested size into consideration but we will return the best possible icon we can get and we do not guarantee that the icon size will change the outcome. Even on Windows if we request icon if sizes 1, 2, 3 and 4 the icon will be basically the same - minimal quality icon available.

implSpec may describe the behavior of the default implementation and if it means referring the non-public API to clarify the behavior of this method i do not see any issue here.
