I think that we do not have to add an icon for the pdf documents; it 
happens that TeX produces pdf documents, but it is not the only system 
to do. For .tex, .sty and other files associated to TeX (and for us 
TeXworks) OK.
The TeXworks logo/icon on these icons should not be too small (the T of 
TeXworks on a piece of paper), the document icon will be small 48x48 or 
smaller. The T would disappear.

Under Windows, when you link a type of document to a program, for 
example a .tex to TeXnicCenter, the documents inherit the icon of the 
program. It should be possible to have a specific icon, MSOffice suite 
is doing it.
