A few thoughts:

1. This doesn't seem like it's a different sensor.  It's the same sensor (and the same data) but with different correction applied to it. I still think this should be an option in the same constructor rather than année constructor (this might imply some restructuring of the GS spec).
2. The term raw is sort of weird as the data is partially calibrated. 
3. We'd need a term for this dynamic calibration to distinguish it from the static (same reference frame) calibration that's done to handle interferences coming from the device's hardware itself. We need to define that term in GS API and reference it from here.
4. As an option, we need something like `keep HardIronBias` or `avoidHardIronCorrection` so we can default to the fully calibrated value when the option is omitted.
