But an impossible one. What about unregistered users - do they never get
the news? Users that join a channel manually rather than in perform so
would potentially join at this "delay" point? 

Such a delay would be unlikely to make any difference but would make an
additional overhead on services while it maintains a list of recently
connected users in order to later send a message to them. 

A lot of things that might not sound like a bad idea need a lot more
thought before considering for implementation.
