[Icecast] Overhead of individual mount points

I'm running a private stream which only has a handful of clients.  I have found it convenient to create a separate mount point on my encoder (Simplecast) for each client.  This allows me to track the current client list using the tools built into Simplecast.  It also allows me to do custom streams when required on a per-destination basis.

All mount points are normally running the same content, encoder and bit rate.

Is there any downside to this kind of configuration?  Additional overhead?
