I certainly agree, in most cases.  However, a USB Ethernet device is
unique in that it is known to be 1 of only 2 devices on the network.
Therefore conflicts are unlikely.  The only source of conflicts is if
there are more than one of these devices plugged into the same host,
and even then I'm not sure that it's a problem, since the routing will
have to choose an interface first anyway.
