That's wrong.
Please remember that you said "assuming hostile users", a hostile
user can run the machine out of swap generally easier than crashing
the machine. Your example of IRC server is just one of exceptions.

If you find a bug which crashes FreeBSD, isn't it better fix the bug?
Why do you stick at not fixing the problem.
