I think this will still be needed, there are many uses for USB
redirection that are not handled by file system redirection, like
printing, web cams, security/license dongles, microcontroller
Printing and Web cams (video) would be good candidates for their own
specialized transport, like filesystem passthrough.
FWIW there is someone working on filesystem passthrough using 9pfs. The
main stumbling block there is lack of a windows driver.
