Because it has not been implemented yet. Adding the code for it would
probably consume another 5-10KB uncompressed.

This package is marked broken and hasn't been maintained in years.

As I already pointed out in my other reply, this is a rather optimistic
assumption. At best you can expect a single digit percentage improvement
by dropping icons.

I know that people love to point at the ui and complain about single
kilobyte size increases there while kernel and user land updates easily
throw away dozens to hundreds of KB due to new transient dependencies,
larger vmlinux images or additional feature code footprint.

All I can say is that I've been extremely conservative with LuCI
changes, always trying to not increase the storage footprint at all and
avoiding dependencies or code bloat whenever possible.

See my other reply.
