Sharing an add-on uses author image

If I share an add-on on facebook by posting its link, it will not use its icon, but rather the author's image. Example:, see screenshot for what it looks like when sharing that link.

By using facebook's object debugger ( I see this warning:

> og:image was not defined, could not be downloaded or was not big enough.
> Please define a chosen image using the og:image metatag, and use an image
> that's at least 200x200px and is accessible from Facebook. Image
> '
> /2392246.png?modified=1401438714' will be used instead.

Since AMO resizes the uploaded icon to 64x64, I assume this is the problem. Is there a way to upload bigger versions of the icon? Or would you be willing to integrate this functionality into AMO in some way, so that the actual add-on icon can be used in this case?

Or another way could be, for example, I already include a 200x200 icon in the add-on package itself (for other purposes), could that be used in the og:image, by copying/caching it automatically if the em:iconURL exists in install.rdf?
