Unlike for tasks and transformations it seems to be impossible to add a custom icon to a custom Connection Manager in SSIS.

The documentation mentioning icons (http://technet.microsoft.com/nl-nl/library/microsoft.sqlserver.dts.runtime.dtsconnectionattribute.iconresource.aspx). And the out of the box Connection Managers do have different icons, but it doesn't seem to work for custom icons

Thank you for submitting this feedback. After carefully evaluating all of the bugs in our pipeline, we are closing bugs that we will not fix in the current or future versions of SSIS. The reasons for closing these bugs are following:
1.     The fix is risky to implement in the current version of the product
2.     Scenarios reported in the bug are not common enough
3.     A viable workaround is available.

If the issue is a critical business interruption, please call CSS (Customer Support Services).

Thanks again for reporting the product issue and continued support in improving our product.
