Rob, This is a solution if you want to achieve this! I was just looking into the possibility because this is a pretty rare scenario. The favico was designed to have a bookmark to a site and have an icon in your favorites so you can quickly find the right bookmark. So the scenario to load this dynamically (for example for every different bookmarkable page in a wicket application, a different favico) is not so common.
Though I had expected to find something in the standard wicket but yeah the scenario is quite uncommon. And with overriding this was implemented by you.
