Interesting. I guess now there should be a Shell Add-In just in case too like the handy Tweak Send To Toys or CuteMenus for example.

In addition, in case you want to Extract icons quickly, try the little app recommended by HowToGeek Staff: BeCyIconGrabber.
If you liked it, just don't forget to say 'thank you'.

Enjoy and have a happy new year!
