Two more reasons:
1) I don't like seeing errors / misdetected hardware in kernel messages.
Far too many times I've seen loading drivers for hardware that was never
there. As for kernel, I want it to be clean and do its work for the
exact hardware I use,
2) The may be some hardware I don't want / need supported, typically
multimedia devices on servers. The less code runs, the smaller
possibility something can go wrong in unexpected places.
Just my USB 0.02.
