Um... there is no "re-rip" needed.
If I understand correctly stream-rep as you call it takes real time. Where burn/rip does not. If I wanted to stream-rip a 30hour audible book, it would take, well 30 hours. Probably takes about 15 minutes doing a burn then a rip.
Plus, once you burn it to CD you have an archivial BU, so if you ever loose the MP3 version of it you can just rip the CDs again.
