2 things.  Shoutcast forbids Icecast servers to be listed on the directory 
and shoutcast can't relay a icecast feed.  BUT icecast can relay a shoutcast

Subject: [Icecast] Register into shoutcast directory


Icecast is a great project but there is one big problem left ! We can't
register into shoutcast directory which is the mosted used radio
directory in the world. So this realy difficult to find more listeners...
After many search, I was thinking that the only way to get our radio
into shoutcast directory was to setup a shoutcast relay using our
icecast server. Unfortunatly it seams not working because shoutcast
don't get any information from our icecast server (genre, stream url, ...).
Is someone has experimented a such case ?
