So I love the idea and execution but have one major worry before signing up.

If you're creating an entirely new channel and archiving it every time, does that mean my archived channels list will be full of potentially thousands of channels? Ignoring that I'll struggle to find channels I may want to revive (we archive channels a lot here), will Slack cope well with this? (We've seen what happens if they have over a certain user count.. so I'd be worried what would happen here.) Is it possible to entirely wipe a channel after a certain period of time rather than archive?

Update: OK, I'm an idiot. I just realized I could spin up a second free Slack account just for this use..
