This rings true to me (but I’m not an expert in these APIs).

Would there be a use case where the sender side of a connection
is the subject of a try-with-resources, where the end of the block
needs to issue a `finishSending` call?  In that case, the sender
side (in isolation from the whole channel) might benefit from
a view object whose close method is an alias for `finishSending`.
