Just to be sure you understand, this alternative in ogg format is not here
in case the mp3 stream is down, but to allow a full html5 expérience so 99%
of our users can listen with html5 ( well 82% if I see
http://caniuse.com/audio)

But as you now , 50% of the browser don't support mp3 and 30% don't support
 ogg so the ogg/mp3 is the solution to avoid flash for 82% of your
listeners.

I though the preload="none" would change something but it seems not. Do you
have any Burst option on your icecast.xml ?
