Not quite true: STREAMS had built-in facilities to help avoid data copies. It is a heavily layered model, and the queueing is not extremely efficient, but byte-for-byte copies are minimal in a properly configured STREAMS system.
These channels are a totally different concept, though, and address a different problem entirely.
