This is possible, but nobody has done it yet :)

At some point, the CVS version of streamdev supported an external 
remuxer, and here you could put something like a 'requant' tool to 
reduce the bitrate. I did try and twiddle about with it myself but ended 
up getting nowhere.

The last I knew, the 'external remux' support is now broken.

I too would love to see this feature to stream over a 11Mb Wifi LAN 
where DVB streams are slightly too fast to be handled :)
