I disagree.  In my case, I wanted to create a channel where there were
no ops so users don't have to endure lame op-wars, etc.  However, I did
need to maintain a level of control over the channel to protect from
extremely obnoxious behavior or lame bots, etc.  By registering as
founder of the channel I induced the unwanted 'auto-op' behavior.   My
only solution was to register another fake user to become channel
founder and set their nick to noexpire.  That to me seems like needless
complexity.  A simple check to see if the user wishes to be opped or not
is not complex.
