I do - if you actually stop and read the Efreeti monster description, and then read what the alignments actually mean, it's relatively clear that it's rather suicidal to mass Bind Efreeti.
As to Planar Binding:
For the most part, if you're using Planar Binding, you're an Arcane caster, rather than a Divine caster - which is good for you, as Clerics have to be very careful what spells they cast - the Lawful-Good Aligned Cleric couldn't Planar Bind an Archon - it requires Magic Circle Against Law (a [Chaos] spell), or Magic Circle Against Good (an [Evil] spell), which they can't cast due to alignment restrictions. For the same reason, the Cleric couldn't bind an Efreeti (it takes on the [Evil] descriptor), nor a Ghale ([Chaotic]). It gets really hard for anything other than a TN Cleric to get things (although there are some critters they can grab).
If you plan on Binding often, a Sorcerer is (in many ways, not all), a better choice than a Wizard - due to the Charisma-based casting working well with the Charisma-based deal. Yes, there are ways to mitigate this (Enervation on the bound critter prior to negotiations, Moment of Prescience for the negotiation, and so on), but the Sorcerer doesn't need as much resource investment in it.
Hmm... out of time.... oh well.
