My understanding of the correlation issue is that a client may cache the icon at the conclusion of authentication and registration, but a client will not resolve the icon before authentication using the network due to correlation concerns.

I agree with @lgarron that very few relying parties will manage to fit a usable icon within the 85 bytes you can hypothetically squeeze out of a 128 character data URL. It is more likely they will use a regular URL and let clients deal with the UX of not having an icon.
