documentation is sorely lacking... but giallo adds a level of indirection
to what I have understood of your current thinking:

reads, writes etc are not directly initiated by the demultiplexer,
rather by the connection class, which is responsable for
combining the socket (pipe, or whatever else) class with the
demultiplexer, hiding the details of which demultiplexer is
used and ensuring the socket is in the correct blocaking/non-blocking/
asynch mode.
