Has any thought been given to migrating IRC from freenode?

Just curious, since it seems like there may be issues with whoever controls freenode now.

LWN article

Evidently there has been a change of control within the volunteer-run organization that has led to the resignations of multiple different volunteers, at least in part due to a concern about the personal information of freenode users under the new management.

Also tweet

Freenode is now just shutting down channels that have topics indicating that the channel has migrated to another network, and is instead redirecting them to unofficial channels on Freenode

Seems... not desirable behavior?
