No. This is only a way which is recommended due to common client bugs.
In this case, this isn't revelant - icecast 1.x doesn't support ogg
at all.

icecast 2.x will maintain content type (mp3, vorbis, etc.) regardless
of extension, but ending ogg mounpoints with .ogg is recommended as
a workaround for some very common client bugs (_new_ clients should
 NOT under any circumstances rely on this)
