Well.... it can be received. It's just rare.

Generally, a StasisStart event indicates when a channel enters into your
application. When that occurs, you get a subscription to the channel. When
the channel leaves (indicated by StasisEnd), that subscription is

If you persisted the subscription via the applications resource, then you'd
get the slightly less elusive ChannelDestroyed event.

So how do you get the ChannelCreated? And when?

By subscribing for an endpoint via the applications resource. Subscribing
to an endpoint also subscribes you to any channels created for that
endpoint. Likewise, subscripting to an endpoint's technology subscribes you
to all endpoints, which subscribes you to all channels for those endpoints.
(This is how you can make a 'show me the world via ARI' - albeit a more
specific slice of the world). If you do that, you'll get the ChannelCreated
events when a channel is made that is associated with an endpoint.
