No, actually that's not cool. Yahoo stipulates that you may only make roster moves with the intention of improving your own team or its standing within the league.
1. All league-related transactions will be executed with the intent of improving the owner's team and/or its standing within the league.
2. No owner may drop or "dump" players from their team for any reason other than improving their own team and/or its standing within the league.
3. No owner will engage in any action that may be deemed to be collusive (two or more owners agreeing to make moves that benefit one team, but not the other).
4. No owner will make any roster moves (including waiver claims, trade proposals, etc.) whose sole purpose is to hamper the play of other owners.
5. No owner will take any action whose purpose is to, in any way, interfere with fair play in a league.
What you are talking about isn't called streaming, it's called "churning" and it's definitely frowned upon.
Realistically there's no way to police it, but it is poor etiquette and technically unfair play.
