I agree in general. The catch is that you need enough buffering.
In lots of cases, buffering is expensive so the hardware designers try to
avoid it. A big chunk of the USB architecture is trying to guarantee service
so the dongle designer can figure out how little buffering they can get away
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
