In my experience most people don't know there is such a thing as a "W3C 
standard" or "valid HTML".  That icon is meant to tell people that such
a concept exists, and the curious will click on it and find out more. 
I'd argue for retaining the icon on the page: it doesn't occupy significant
space.  The more people learn of the importance of standards, the fewer
web pages will end up being IE-only.
