In general putting Icecast behind a reverse proxy is not the best idea
as some webservers are not really made out of the box to easily deal
with the kind of usage Icecast will usually produce (long running connections
serving a continuous stream). Additionally Icecast is not really capable
currently do deal with being reverse-proxied properly so some things will
break when doing that.

So unless you want to shoot yourself in the foot and run into various
issues I would not recommend to do it.
