[Icecast] Limiting mountpoints

I'm pretty new to IceCast and I've got a question,
Is it possible to limit the amount and types of streams (mountpoints) a
I've got several users (say 10), that I want to be able to stream
through my server. But to limit the bandwith costs I'd like to limit
the amount of data they stream.
- The mount specific options will allow me to 'reserve' specific
mountpoints for each user (by way of user/password), but is there a
directive that prevents them from creating a new mountpoint? (as they
are created on-the-fly by default). The only way I can easily see is
launching a seperate server for each user and limiting the sources of
each server to 1.
- Are there directives (either server-wide or mount-specific) that limit
the type of stream (bitrate, encoding etc) that sources can supply?
I've checked the docs, and read through the last few months of
maillinglist archive, but I couldn't find a reference to my questions.
Any help/tips are very much appreciated!
