This was explored a while back and closed as "Not Fixable" given Mark 
Waddingham's understanding of the Cocoa APIs:

Either his understanding is incorrect, or Apple is using an unpublished 
API for their Finder.

If you can dig up the API call to get rid of those unused icons please 
post it to the report and they'll reopen it.
