Yes you could, but a lot of standard stuff uses IRC ports.
Two months ago I was disconnected from the net by my provider because
of abuse via IRC. Luckily I only needed to mention Tor to get back up
again. That is: after blocking IRC.
Maybe excluding IRC in the default ExitPolicy would prevent some abuse
problems and frustration. And I can tell you: getting disconnected is
very frustating, up to the point of madness :)
