Fine with me but I'm keen to learn about the use-case where the current
behavior is wanted.  I guess there is a use-case because otherwise the
IRC server wouldn't have that implemented as-is.

And IMHO when messaging nickserv or other service bots receiving
confidential data, the current behavior is not acceptable.  I'm not sure
if the automatic authentication in terms of `rcirc-authinfo' checks if
nickserv (or whatever) is actually available and, if not, falls into
that trap just as I did by messaging the non-existent NickServ manually.
