That's always an option, I suppose.

I think logos (not icons) are potentially very useful, but I guess
only time will tell.

Well, there's a fine distinction between logos and icons (size and
use) but the height and width are required so one should be able to
find a logo (as opposed to an icon) with little problem. The problem
is finding a background image (if one were provided). All of them are
images, but without a label of some kind, I don't think there would be
any way to pick a background image out of the bunch. Thoughts?
