Hmm, I'm not sure I'd be happy seeing my own picture on the top-right
of my session at all times (or did I misunderstand your suggestion?).

These kinds of icons are here, I think, to convey some kind of
information. Putting icons next to menu items helps, in my opinion,
identifying them faster. A status icon also provides information.
Having my face next to my name doesn't really give me anything, I know
what I look like :-)
