I agree.  It's interesting to note that when it was first introduced there was 
a new way of knowing if someone had bookmarked your site in IE at least, but 
of course that's all changed as all browser's must look for the ico file 
regardless, for tagging the tabs as discussed.

"While this file is neither encouraged nor mentioned in any RFC, it is good 
practice to have one on our site, if only to silence the error logs."
