[Icecast] Question about replacing the web interface with an audio stream

What’s wrong with reverse proxying icecast through apache?
In my case, it’s just a measure to allow a secondary point of access to a stream from public wifi that only allows ports 80 and 443.
Is it just a potential resource usage implication?
