It's just a example of a complex data structure that cannot easily be
represented using the tagged-list form (I took it as an example because the
first version of the devreg patch used tagged lists, too, and the complexity
of representing this USB structure convinced me that tagged-lists are too
limited).
Whatever format is chosen for proc, it should be used for all data.
