Potentially _PROCESSED though that will need somewhat different handling.
A nasty trick for that might be to map it to RAW and then have the SCALE
reflect the divider circuit scale only.

It's perfectly possible to have channels with neither _RAW or _PROCESSED
but I suspect we don't care about them here.

There might be an application that needs to do buffered data flows in the
long run, but we can figure out how to do that when one exists.

It won't be a huge amount more than you have here, though we might need
a trigger pass through as well to allow you to set the trigger for
the front end and having it automatically applied to the backend.
