I'm very much a proponent of this change (in fact, I've proposed it myself
in the past when I was more involved with Xubuntu and thus Xfce). I imagine
what will happen though is that it'll take more than a few days before
you'll start to see people float in and start off-topic discussion or ask
for support. However, from my experience with Ubuntu and our devel channel
(#ubuntu-devel) asking people to take the discussion elsewhere (ie. 'Hi,
sorry this is the development channel. Please see #xfce for support') is
generally pretty effective. For when it isn't effective, there is always the
option to ban or mute (the latter being sort of the reverse of the current
setup - everyone can read the discussion but those muted can't contribute).
