Also agreed.  We can have the license point to a URL with the image as
an alternative.  Depending on use, we could provide a few alternatives. 
There's the full banner ad size (for people who absolutely love JDOM),
the "powered by" icon size, and so on.  Here are some URLs showing how
O'Reilly has used my book's teakettle theme in various icons.

That's my thought.  Don't require it, but politely suggest it.
