How do you specify a custom icon for an XFCE 4.12 desktop menu's

For an application rather than a submenu, you can do this in foo.application:


But for submenu 'foo' specifying a path for an icon file in (same as above) doesn't work.

AFAICT, for submenus you aren't allowed to specify the path of an icon
file?  You're only allowed to specify an "icon name" or something?
