Yes, TIFF. There is no reason to break TIFF6 compatibility for
such an image. Putting little icon files in a less-compatible
format that already wastes space on extra-big IFD offsets is
not sensible. Doing this for no gain, and breaking all the old
TIFF readers, should be very strongly discouraged.

Once you get into the gigabytes, a few kilobytes here and
there just isn't an issue.
