What is the reason that favicons are moved out of places.sqlite and into favicons.sqlite?

size matters - favicons can be larger than old fashioned 32x32 - up to 512x512 and that will blow places.

I think this the related Bugzilla report.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=492172

Basically to allow for higher resolution favicons to be stored.

The quick and often recommended way to transfer Bookmarks&History to a clean Profile is copy/paste places.sqlite.

Wonder what procedure is to also get the new Favicons into Places.sqlite ? or.... are we going to have to quit recommending copy/paste of Places ?

Think you would need to recommend both places.sqlite and favicons.sqlite.
