I'm glad you though about liquidsoap for this application.

One thing that I did not see, though. Liquidsoap can receive the DJ stream 
directly and compose a stream the way you want.

This way, you could compose the stream as you want without having to do 
anything on icecast and the listener side.

In the SVN version you can even connect simultaneously several shoutcast DJs 
by using different ports for each of them..
