A problem is, that the channels.conf keeps on growing as new
channels are added but old are never removed.

I vote for a mechanism with a touch timestamp (which is set when
the channels if announced). Channels which are not touched for a
certain time and are not used otherwise e.g. by a pending timer
could be removed.
