I completely agree with you. I have had good luck (knock on wood) keeping the extra wort in my pressure canner which also doubles as my boil kettle. The seal is air tight if I block the vent. Because it is sealed when the wort is still hot, as done with the no-chill method, there is a low chance of infection.

Using a secound ale pail would be more risky as there is a much larger air space which could contain wild yeast or bacteria. Also the wort would need to be chilled before adding to the pail.
