For what it's worth, this is something I've implemented in my Admin Drop 
Down plugin, where other plugins can define their own icon in the menus.

I think the ideal API for plugins should be something like:
add_filter('menu_icon', 'myplugin_icon');
function myplugin_icon($plugin) {
        if ($plugin == plugin_basename(__FILE__))
                return 'url/to/icon.png';
        return $plugin;
