I don't know about that? 
I use quite some programs and they all have icons in front of many many 
menus. Kile, konqueror, k3b etc. Not much less than Lazarus.

Normally, under Windows the convention is that you put an icon in front of 
any menu item that corresponds with a toolbar button (with the same icon).
It makes clear that the menu item/button have the same function.
Menu items for which no toolbar button exists, do not have an icon.
