As nobody responded so far, I asked RunRev support and got a pretty comprehensive reply. Maybe it doesn't need repeating here, but just in case there are people as forgetful and out of the loop as I am, here's what Heather told me (clearly none of it is confidential!):

I am effectively starting again and I find I've now forgotten most of what I learned, plus the topic has moved on with Retina displays, iPhone 5 etc. Can someone point me to some concise LC documentation that explains (for a start) what exactly is the spec of the Icons and Splash Screens that are referred to in the current (6.1.3) version of the LC Standalone settings? That way I could get an experimental app to show its face, at least.
