I don't think so.

YOu can set up mount aliases that are port-specific but I don't know of a 
way of preventing access to other mounts.

So for example, you could put your streams on stream1 and stream2 and set 
up an alias called stream8000 which specifies port
8000 to point to 
stream1, and an alias stream8001 which is specific to port 8001 which 
points to stream2.

Then you could publicise the aliases and hide the original mounts so in 
theory no-one should find them.  But I don't think that you'd be able to 
prevent access to stream1 or stream2 on either port if someone actually 
did find them.

I'm curious to know what your use case is.
