Ah, nevermind; I looked up the spec pages; "One GIF feature that PNG does not try to reproduce is multiple-image support, especially animations; PNG was and is intended to be a single-image format only." Having more than one image in a single file, for the purposes of favicon.ico, is not a stupid idea. So if you really want to do things well, you're still stuck using Windows icon resource files. And who cares? It's a bloody file format, and it's well-understood. Just because MS has been, is, and will probably continue to be an overbearing, illegal, manipulative monopoly doesn't mean we can't reap the fruits the of their labour. I don't believe MNG is widely-supported enough for use as favicon.ico.
