In a sense, but ultimately with caveats. OpenGraph is very useful right
now, but Facebook can unilaterally change it or wipe it out entirely (both
have already happened to a degree). Microsoft's color properties possess
mechanics that are extremely specific to how IE uses color in Windows.
Why isn't <link rel=icon sizes=""> sufficient?
That should suffice, I agree. Meta Image can serve as a fallback when an
icon is not available – specifically, as an alternative to using a
programmatic screenshot of the app. The principal concept in this Meta
Image proposal is to specify a graphic that represents the page content.
