+1 it's silly that favicon.ico is considered required.
There's also an online ico creator (heavily ad supported)
favicon.io/

I haven't seen your 1px solution before. I like it. Although isn't there also a size requirement for favicon.ico? I thought they were supposed to be 16x16 or something like that.
