The only feedback I got about this is that we should revert the change
for categories in the applications menu (and system menu, for the
preferences). Some people would also like other icons to come back in
the panel menu (and just the panel menus, because it's a special menu).

Usability people: can you step up and tell us what is the right thing to
do here? At the moment, my decision as maintainer is to put back the
icons for categories in the applications menu.

Documentation people: does going back to showing icons there break some
documentation that was updated?

Release team: would you approve such a change at this point?
