    Exactly.

    The only fuzziness here is what to do if the host misbehaves and
    sends another IN packet when all its data has been sent, instead
    of the OUT/STATUS packet. (Host error...)

    Most peripheral controller hardware is well enough designed that
    it can detect this and send a zero length packet rather than STALL
    the transfer. It's polite to do so, because that host bug isn't
    exactly unknown. (Some old versions of Linux did that...)
