Convert an existing channel out into a new team.
I would like to be able to easily convert an existing channel out into its own new team. I would like to be able to maintain a New Projects Team containing channels for various new projects in their consideration/potential development phase, once a new project is accepted for full development I would like to be able to convert that channel out into its own full fledged team.
I have a channel that is growing arms and legs, and really needs to evolve into a team so sub channels can be added. Don't want to lose the information that is there, or have to copy, so this will be great functionality moving forward

As work groups and tactics evolve, having flexibility to "promote" Channels to Teams, and potentially vice versa, would be incredibly helpful.
Another Use Case. Our firm has a Team for each Client with which we have a contracted engagement. For potential clemnts we would like to run a Potential Clent Team with prpospects as a channel per prospect. When the prospect becomes a paying client, it would be more than useful to promote the channel to a full Team

Our use case:
Project spike inside a team turns out to require the attention of those outside the team.
We don't see a need to add those 'outsiders' to the team, and would rather keep the signal/noise ratio low where we can.
Rather we see a need to elevate the channel to a team, and keep the discussions made thus far and make them available to the 'new' members.
