<p>Yes it is.  This is a short-coming of the MP3 format.  In practice, if the
sampling rate and channels are the same, you might be OK, not sure.
Certainly, different sampling rates/channels will kil clients.
Note that Vorbis is designed to cope with this nicely by letting you chain
ogg streams together.
