If Microsoft predicted monitors sizes are going to be larger and fonts
are going up to 120 dpi, then it doesn't make any sense to use smaller
icons.

Windows (using its APIs) selects icon size by the order of the icons and
color depth favoring smaller icons that come first in some cases. The
rules are very weird how icons are picked and you have almost no control
over which one to pick from the API point of view. It may be fixable by
simply changing the order in which some icons appear in the ICO file.
