Actually, it is/was a SCSI problem. The short version being that it is/was
easier to hotplug an entire HBA rather than an individual device. That is
being changed in 2.5 right now. usb-storage used an HBA-per-device, while
SBP2 uses a single HBA.

Of course, all this is being changed right now in 2.5.x
