I've seen the private channel work both ways, both inclusive and exclusive. One guild I was in announced a special channel for guildies above a certain rank...the idea being that there would be a special pseudo-officers chat for those who weren't necessarily officers. Having just come from a guild where officer ranks were handed out like candy, resulting in a very strong division between the "officer" clique and "the other half", I thought this would be potentially quite divisive. This wasn't helped by the fact that the powers that be in the guild didn't seem inclined to explain exactly what the criteria of being invited to the special chat channel were. In my current guild at the start of Wrath, we had a raiding alliance with a chat channel shared between two guilds. It was used for fun off-topic chat that did not necessarily belong in raid chat. It remained, and if anything became livelier, after our alliance was dissolved. It even stayed in place when one of the guilds did a quiet burnout-fuelled implode, losing most of the active members. Many of the people who drifted off to other guilds or went guildless still remain in the channel. There's no real restriction on who uses it, and it operates perfectly. In fact at times it's considerably livelier than guild chat.
