https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=589584 was a bug report
against eog, to always show icon for rotate/flip menu items, the same
rationale could be applied to many Inkscape menu items.
I quote Andreas in the bug report :

it makes the items in that menu segment very much more recognizable."
as rotate clockwise could need some visualization in order to show
