You have to realise that "host on another network" is a euphemism for
"hostile takeover [by me/us] because I think I could run it better".

Both are completely insane notions. A channel is not formed from a
declaration by some random person, it is comprised entirely from the
people that occupy it. You can't "move a channel", and you can't "take
it over", all you can do is persuade the people in it to (a) join a
different channel, and (b) leave the original one. That's an exercise
in herding pigeons.
