Yes, had the same idea earlier and tried it, with the original Rlogo.svg
copied in there under that name -- but I got an 'empty' icon displayed :-/
(I had also removed the png "to be sure", your more careful suggests it is
needed as a fallback.)

When I follow your suggestion to use both it works with new logo (yay) with
the only minor drawback ... that the white background shows whereas all other
logos are using transparent background.
