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 ;)
