You'll need to use a port-specific alias on one (or both) of the ports if 
you want to use the same mountpoint specifier for each.  Otherwise, a 
mountpoint is a mountpoint and will be available on all ports.

So for example, you could do:

<alias source="/" port="8000" dest="/stream"/>
<alias source="/" port="8002" dest="/stream2"/>
