Well, we do have a PackageDB. Why couldn't we permit maintainers to go to:

https://admin.fedoraproject.org/packagedb

Then, on the page for the package (once logged in, of course), click on
the icon next to the package name (a question mark by default) and
upload an icon. Then, extend the PackageDB API such that PackageKit
tries to call out to PackageDB to get icons on a per package basis
(also, as a list of packages).
