I downloaded the cvs version of icecast (http://www.xiph.org/cvs.html)

"grep -ri mp3 *" from the root of the icecast source directory confirm 
that there's many references to "mp3". 
The "debian/control" file says:

Package: icecast2
Architecture: any
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}
Recommends: ices2
Description: streaming Ogg Vorbis/MP3 media server
 Icecast is an audio broadcasting system.  It can stream music in both
 MPEG 1 Layer 3 (MP3) and Ogg Vorbis formats, supports multiple
 streams on a single port through the use of "mountpoints," includes
 web-based status and management interfaces, and has many other
 advanced features.

The documentation for the config file of Icecast2 also mentions mp3:
