Custom plugin icon

Hi all,

Question; in the docs under:
Forms > Blueprints > Example: Plugin Blueprints it notes that icons for plugins can only be from Font Awesome:

icon* Icon is what will be used on At this stage, we are using FontAwesome icons library, so if you are developing a new plugin or theme, it should be your job to ensure the icon you picked is not already used. Otherwise we will have to change it for you.

Is there not a way to bundle and load in a custom icon for th plugin?

Any input or suggestions are welcomed
Thank you in advance
