Yeah, de-/encoding a stream would have a lot of advantages but there is no streaming en-/ decoder I would be aware of and for the application I'd intend to use it for, it might be sufficient to de-/ encode a file in whole. Dependent of the time and efforts for creation and maintenance of a stream encoder, it might not fit into the time budget. (Apart from that, as of now, it gives a nice demo application that just runs quickly in every browser, independently from any platform and has nearly zero maintenance cost.)

The reference decoder is a file decoder, so you probably don't want to port that. I don't think that there is a reference streaming decoder, so you'd need to write your own using the libFLAC or libFLAC++ routines.
