This was intentional. It was left without -i for a period of time
(months) so people rejoining would get transparently redirected, but
to officially shut down the old channel name and prompt people to
update their configuration to reflect the new channel it's at some
point necessary to make it blatantly obvious it's no longer used.
Making it invite-only seemed to be the only simple solution to
preventing anyone from using that channel name indefinitely.
