No idea why this is being condemned - this is a pretty good idea. It demonstrates the thought process that's gone into the location of the object, e.g. 3px for the border, plus a 5px margin, then another 40px per icon, and another 5px for the right margin. A comment wouldn't hurt, but this is just a novel example of descriptive programming.
