The full-size USB connectors are only rated for 1,500 insertions, so could wear out within 5 years if plugged/unplugged daily. (Micro-USB is rated for 10,000 insertions, and the older Mini-USB for 5,000.)

Overall, not quite as enthusiastic a response as I hoped for initially, but thanks anyway for the discussion.
