I had wondered about that possible solution myself. However, it's a bit 
disconcerting that the same icon is used for both document types.

Interestingly, on my PC the Publicon installation has made all my 
Mathematica/Publicons icons display as the Mathematica version 4 icons (i.e. 
the old purple icon rather than the current orange icon). Why they set it up 
this way I don't know. I have tried to override it without success.
