No - mostly because IRC CANNOT BE USED to make project decisions.

It's lovely for beating down a problem, kicking around ideas, but those
ideas MUST COME BACK TO dev@.  Decisions themselves must be made on dev@.

It's the responsibility of the project participants to grab any useful
log thread, forward it on to the dev@ list to get people thinking and
voting.

Automatically capturing IRC logs undermines this responsibility and harms
the project (for exactly the reasons you point out above).
