Unless you somehow restrict access to the channel, it isn't much of a silo. I see TC members in many other channels, so it isn't as if there will be no interaction between TC members and the community that they serve.

I also think that a channel like #openstack-tc is more discoverable to people who might want to interact with the TC, as it follows the same naming convention as #openstack-nova, #openstack-ironic, etc.
