Discussing this a bit with James I agree we should display the
notification. The icon is like the favicon for pages. It's not a
critical resource, just there for entertainment.

I think we should remove the event altogether. We do not have events
for favicons either. We can always introduce an event later on if it
turns out failing images is a huge problem people want to be able to
debug more easily than by prefetching the image first.
