fwiw, i think that this is a feature.  Use case: Notifications from my
email provider would display the the sender's image as the icon.  Use
case two: Tweets including the user's image.

Is it possible to support this case?

Maybe it is useful to have two icons?  One icon for the document that
is posting the notification, and one icon per-notification.  This
would allow things like Twitter to have one icon for their application
and another icons per tweet.  We might be able to derive the
application icon via the favicon or use the application icon for
'installed web apps'.
