This is likely the correct thing to do - see my change to the number
of uhids visible just below. It was previously 4, I increased it
to 16 a few months ago because my keyboard alone was using all
of those four.

Expectations have changed over time. These days USB is used for
almost everything and the previous expectation of a couple of
input nodes and maybe a single storage device doesn't really
apply any more. There are also 'virtual' devices and other
weird things going on...

I'd just suggest formating it consistently with the line below it.
