the most likely case i can think of involves being able to allow
USB input devices to remain alive during suspend (for wakeup
purposes), while powering down other devices (disks?) for
power savings.

but any use usage sounds complicated enough that the current "all or none"
approach seems like it would cover most needs, and be relatively
easy to manage:
    Leave USB devices powered on during idle suspend?  yes/no
