Might T76473: Implement ResourceLoader module to ship CSS for sets of SVG+PNG icons to the user be relevant? That's going to add SVG->PNG fallback ability inside MW without needing to ship PNG assets, so that the OOUI framework can be used with impunity.

It will be, but only after we fix T72654.

Mass-removing the Multimedia tag from MediaViewer tasks, as this is now being worked on by the Reading department, not Editing's Multimedia team.

Declining per T72932.

This is not just IE8.

Pretty much everything supports SVG icons these days, so this is not worth fixing. If someone does want to fix it nevertheless, then T72654 would be the preferred approach.
