This would remove the easy functionality of running other OSs on the machine (which there are many valid reasons for) - either in emulation or natively.
Apple, please don't go that path.
To an atheist, G. K. Chesterton somewhere remarked, the universe is the most exquisite mechanism ever constructed by nobody.

I am glad Apple didn't choose USB for its devices -- I have a Sony Reader which uses one kind of connector, a different cable for my nieces Blackberry and nephew's Nokia, and a 3rd cable for my Nokia D5000 dSLR. All the connectors are different. As I use high quality cables, they cost me an arm and a leg.
I purchased the 30-pin to USB adapter when I bought my iPhone4S, and if I ever acquire a new iDevice, I will also get the Lightning-to-USB adapter.
