While conforming with USB specs?  Has that changed recently?

In the not-too-distant past I know there was explicit language
saying that such configurations are not allowed.  (At least,
in terms of external connectors.  A board using USB for internal
peripheral connections would be OK.)

Those issues can be deferred until peripheral support exists.
At that point you'll need to get better solutions to those config

Then what's it doing in that GIT tree you pointed me at?  :)

OK.  Then the first incaration of this will be as a host-only
driver, in its own directory, and adding peripheral support will
cause minor lunacy.  :)
