You never mentioned what locators the various devices use.  It's
important to have those well-defined, and to have your config scheme
structured such that somebody can uniquely identify and hard-code the
identities of devices on their busses.  (Given the nature of hubs,

'things which attach to hubs', i.e. have root hub as the root of the
tree, devices and other hubs attached to it, etc.)
