Hi Andrew,

Eli did comment already (I agree with him). Just some few further nits.

Please add the URL of the spec above, perhaps as @footnote. Furthermore,
icon names are not restricted to the ones from the Icon Naming
Specification, you can use any icon name which is in the user's current icon

Say ':app-icon'.

I found your initial example funny, maybe add it here:

    :title "I am playing music" :app-icon 'multimedia-player)
