The browser could cache it during make credential, and after authenticating.   I am guessing that browsers may not be able to easily display only cached icons. 
Larger storage requirements is not going to fly for roaming authenticators, unless you want them to store only one or two credentials. 
On a practical note do we have the size etc of the icons sufficiently defined so that a platform could display them?   This may be a bit like the authenticator icon in meta-data, something that seems like a good idea, but is never used in practice.
If browsers are not going to display them I would drop them going forward to make more room.
