The SSM2018 had an internal compensation system, but that is applied
per-channel (the SSM2018 was single channel).  Replicating that in the
2164 would either require three extra pins per channel, or a global
compensation system which would preclude certain circuit
configurations.  Sticking with the existing scheme is not a bad

Which version of the datasheet do you have?

Again, it's a matter of compromise - for the common case this would
need an external resistor per channel.
