Thanks all comments.

I read, then I concern one obvious difference between usbfs and other
discussed filesystems (i.e. devpts, sysfs, and tmpfs).  Other
filesystems is applied for all linux based system.  On the other hand,
usbfs is related with real hardware.  If user wants to disable usbfs,
then he needs to touch glibc package settings.  All hardware do not
have USB devices.

But I also wonder why there is no usb userland programs/libraries
which provide /etc/init.d/* to mount usbfs.  I think it makes sense to
provide mounting usbfs by /etc/init.d/ scripts, but I don't still
decide whether /etc/init.d/mountkernfs is appropriate or not...
