The default UI access some globals for the chat windows by referencing _G["CHAT_"..type.."_GET"]. These are the message prefixes used.

CHAT_GUILD_GET = "|Hchannel:GUILD|h[Guild]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_INSTANCE_CHAT_GET = "|Hchannel:INSTANCE_CHAT|h[Instance]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_INSTANCE_CHAT_LEADER_GET = "|Hchannel:INSTANCE_CHAT|h[Instance Leader]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_MONSTER_PARTY_GET = "|Hchannel:PARTY|h[Party]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_OFFICER_GET = "|Hchannel:OFFICER|h[Officer]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_PARTY_GET = "|Hchannel:PARTY|h[Party]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_PARTY_GUIDE_GET = "|Hchannel:PARTY|h[Dungeon Guide]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_PARTY_LEADER_GET = "|Hchannel:PARTY|h[Party Leader]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_PET_BATTLE_INFO_GET = "|Hchannel:PET_BATTLE_INFO|h[Pet Battle]|h:\32";
CHAT_RAID_GET = "|Hchannel:RAID|h[Raid]|h %s:\32";
CHAT_RAID_LEADER_GET = "|Hchannel:RAID|h[Raid Leader]|h %s:\32";
Additional probing reveals the following:
Numbered channels; |Hchannel:CHANNEL:1|h[1. General - Dalaran]|h.
BNet conversations; |Hchannel:BN_CONVERSATION:1|h[11. Conversation]|h.
Note BNet conversations start with an internal index of 1 instead of their displayed index of MAX_WOW_CHAT_CHANNELS+1.

Note these are the links used to allow the user to click and open a chat message to the respective channel. These only work for chatframe:AddMessage() and will be refused by SendChatMessage().
