I'd prefer not to use about:icon, but I don't think it matters much.
Currently, the only URL in the about scheme that's accessible to web
content is about:blank.  I believe Internet Explorer has a "res"
scheme that might be more appropriate.  That's a general way to refer
to browser-provided resources with URLs.  Perhaps
res:icon?ext=html&size=32

At a higher level, we could bikeshed about the name forever.  You
should pick whatever you think is most aesthetic since you're driving
the process.
