No, don't do that. Oggenc (well, actually the code to do that is now in libvorbisenc) does that itself. It doesn't do similar things for different sample rates yet, but it will for 1.0

As I said, it doesn't scale the bitrate properly for other sample rates, but it will for 1.0. vorbis will produce transparent encoding at that sort of bitrate for lower sample rates - but right now, it's completely untuned for other sample rates, so quality suffers. The -m option was removed in favour of a more accurate -b, but some of the backend work in libvorbis to make this a complete solution isn't done yet.

The design is tuned for these bitrates - the current encoder is more limited at the lower end, and can produce higher bitrates as well. There's no hard limit to the max or min bitrate allowed.
