The problem is that what you expect from an icon and what I expect are probably

Should Xterm be an X?  Picture of a computer?  Should emacs be the Emacs GNU or
what?  Howabout LyX or GVim?  There is no good standard icon for many items.

Beyond that, implementation.

You need something like the current menus code.  If the item is there, the wm
provided scripts generates the needed settings.
