That's pretty much the same (and opposite) problem I'm facing.
Imagine you're storing image data for output in the channels.  100%
solid  = 100% output.  Now, increase the canvas size and there's a
solid border of output.  I must delete it to prevent it from printing.

IMO, storing selections is but a secondary function of spot channels -
their primary function is output to press.  But I'm coming from a
print background, so perhaps I'm biased ;)
