Disconnecting Google + from YouTube

Is there any way to disconnect the two accounts without actually deleting the YT channel?

I wouldn't mind having a Google + page, but the fact of the matter is I'm not using it, so it's just sitting there, empty. Plus (hehe) even though I've presumably linked my Gmail / YT account with Google +, I still get this annoying prompt every single time I sign into YouTube.

Is there any way to separate the two, under the new TOS?
