Sorry what does ET mean? And in which cases can the stream consist of 
than one http response? The only cases that I could come up with seem to 
not matter for live streaming, so are not a problem for the ICY cases…

If not with a stream filter, what else would you suggest to handle icy?
Adapt your http module to handle the metadata? Or write a dedicated
module for that and fail in your http access in case of icy so that the
other module can take over?

There are a number of regressions with ICY since the introduction of 
http module that I would like to fix.
