This is the main reason for me to keep it. Maybe it's an idea to move the 
dir.xiph.org to dir.icecast.org or something similar.

I can imagine it could be a bit infringing for xiph.org to show a list of 
non-ogg since it is fighting for open standards.

To me, that would not be the case when you put the list on dir.icecast.org 
for instance. Icecast makes it possible to stream MP3 and AAC+ so maybe it 
makes more sense to have the yp listings availble on an Icecast web
