But: it works this way in icecast 1.x
also, this feature is very useful?
and what are the security considerations? icecast must be run as a 
properly limited user, and all is secure.

as for usefulness: this is very useful indeed. the live radio stream I 
do is done in 4 hour sessions, with each session saved under a different 
file-name for archiving. how would I achieve the same effect without the 
streaming encoder client telling icecast the name of the archive to save?
