have an encoder send a never ending playlist to djs.ogg on your dj
icecast and have each dj mountpoint state a fallback of djs.ogg.  That
way the listener relay will always pick something up.

if the DJ mountpoint has a fallback to an existing stream like the
never-ending playlist then the existing listeners will switchover. Whats
missing is the automatic taking of listeners on re-connection, but that
can be done manually through the web interface using the moveclients

While a general mechanism to allow for fileserving in streams maybe
possible, it's unlikely to be the answer for your situation.
