That's not what I'd call buffer mapping. Perhaps something more like automated
storage, which I wouldn't imagine has much of a benefit outside of
specialized systems (where you'd likely need specialized drivers).
AL_ES_automated_storage? Though in such specialized uses, it may be better
then to make it more stringent to where it can only be used when it would be
able to inline convert.
