that's not a valid point IMHO.

every irc client on earth knows how to deal with multiple servers. So 
after that, the fact that a channel is on that or this server is not a 
big deal, since channels don't cooperate anyway, so you still are able 
to go to #your_prefeded_FOSS_project on Freenode and on #debian on 
OFTC.

The current problem I have with the OFTC/Freenode Pair is that we have 
valuables channels on both networks, and that sucks: where to find:
 - #alioth ? OFTC
 - #debian-devel ? both
 - #debian-kde ? Freenode
 - #debian-release ? OFTC
 - ...

and *that* is the problem I have with debian atm, because it's hard to 
know where channels are. I personnally don't care if all go to Freenode 
or OFTC, it's only a matter of consistency
