I dislike your solution. Rather, if a package wants to provide an icon, I
think it should include the icon file in the package and install the icon
into some standard location. Then all we have to worry about is making
sure that the menu managers can read the particular icon format and know
where the icons are. Are xpm files ok for icons for all the X window

It would also be a good idea to standardize on a size for the icons
(small, since they will be appearing in a menu), and better yet,
standardize on a small set of colors (16 or 32 in all) that can be used by
all icons, to prevent the color map from filling up.
