The 256x256 pixel icons are designed to be viewed in that size. They
can, and often do, contain a different picture to the smaller icons.
When you scale them down to a smaller size, they look bad. On MacOS
that may not matter since multiple icon sizes are written and the best
is chosen, but on freedesktops we only write 1 icon size at the
moment, and then it gets scaled to something like 64x64, so it really
does make a difference.

Install eMule and see its icons on Gnome as an example.
