if you are not bundling ports then there are really no benefits to etherchannel as that is all etherchannel is really.
I suppose you could set them up with only one port and then there is less work to do if you need to add another link but to be honest i would personally find this more confusing ie. an etherchannel has been set up but only has one member.
thanks for your response. I feel the same. there is no need to add overhead and complexity to a config. besides it's pretty easy to create the channel in future demand. However, I have a difficult time convincing one of my co-worker. He kind of make me doubted myself.
