No, it's not handled.  Lots of devices don't care or have different
requirements (eg, 256fs).  The tricky bit with specifying it is that the
ratio depends on the sample width here but it might depend on something
else with another device, or the number of channels might vary.  That
should be doable with DT but it feels like more trouble than it's
reasonable to ask you to take here.

You may well end up with something like that, yeah.
