Maybe they shall, but in fact, commonly, they don't.
Currently host and device vendors differentiate
themselves by how well they cope when this assumption
actually falls apart.
I'd rather see us admit this actually does fall part as
or more often than a STALL appears in a Scsi over Usb
trace, and enhance each Scsi-over-whatever standard
to specify a fix.
