Why?  It makes the most sense. :-)

We won't "pollute" disparate tuning methods with irrelevant columns
in a single table.  Plus, we can have multiple rows of data per each
channel, if we so desire, which is not possible otherwise.

I don't think this is messy, as long as your store a "pointer" to the
extra table in each channel record.  Otherwise, the code can't use
the data without knowing something about the tuning method.
