Well, I'm not sure about the specifics, but certainly as well as usb printers there are "usb parallel cables" that terminate in a usb at one end and a centronics printer // port at the other, and they are matched as ulpt. Whether you can plug a ZIP or whatever into that rather than a printer, I'm not sure, but I can imagine users expecting to be able to. And, I suppose, if I had a laptop without "legacy" ports and only usb, I rather might want to. -- Dan.
