 By default there should be a favicon.  Some browsers (won't mention names)
 try and retrieve whatever is at /favicon.ico (for those of us who install
 wp at the root of the hostname.  If wordpress handles 404's as well,
 you'll be wasting cpu/memory to serve up a 404 for not good reason.  I
 guess it could be a wordpress logo, or just something generic like a white
 square (blank in the url bar) 100% transparent (does that work in all
 browsers?) or something else rather neutral.

 It's rather wasteful on behalf of the UA, but I guess that's the way the
 cookie crumbles.
