The assumption is that user doesn't play games with the card while
system is in low power state. Why should my computer hang if I remove
the card and then resume the system?

Don't know about resume on removal, bacause its not supported by most
controllers, and it very very dangerous (Think about closing the lid,
removing the card, and putting the system in a bag....
