Well, to my eye it makes it less obvious that the icons are individually
associated with the text entries - cumulatively they look like some sort
of decorative sidebar that's unrelated to the menus themselves. Sort of
like the "Windows 98" or "Windows 2000" text (on a blue background) that
runs up alongside the Start menu in those MS operating systems.
