This is often the case with the common "zero-cd" devices, but
they have the storage on upper interface numbers after switching.

The point is to enable udev or any other tool to distinguish
between "unswitched" and "switched"; otherwise the procedure
for switching will be executed on *both* modes which might
disturb the device or the system.

A change in one of the attributes like iProduct or iSerial
could be detected as well of course.

That is up to the (countless) manufacturers of course; on the
other hand, the Windows drivers need to recognize the mode as
well so there should always be one way or the other to
accomplish that.
