Is there a way to assign different icons for POIs categories to display next to the name?

If not, shouldn't we suggest that it would be helpful? :

While looking for an address or custom POI set and having returned list of found addresses it is hard to distinguish different places found.

For example, here we have couple of restaurants, hotels, railway and gas stations, etc. :

As far as I got, MapPoint has got the property for item icon in its db.

Another question - is there some function like "Search for places nearby clicked location" ?
This functionality is present on almost every navigation system and seems to be quite useful sometimes...
