But I bet none of those 12 or 28s are new.  With the cellphone
industry trying to standardize on USB Micro B, I would assume that
manufacturers of other devices would want to leverage that if
technically possible.

Think what would happen if all phones, smart, dumb, or otherwise, and
music players (OTA or recorded) all used the same charger.  How many
manufacturers would save a few bucks in cost by not bothering to ship
a wart at all (which also frees them with having to produce different
warts for different wall sockets/voltages)?  Probably most of them.

I think it will be great.
