There is of course no limit to the crazy things you could do on the outputs
of such a module, but there might be limits of practicality. A single
output mixer is, IMHO, a good place to start. Other options would be
separate outs for each oscillator (probably in conjunction with the output
mixer), or  two 3-input mixers and A / B / A+B outputs.
