It can. USB OTG allows for that. Moreover device can be host even if
ID=1 (so detected cable type is USB device), or peripheral when ID=0 (so
detected cable type is USB host). Devices would need to have complete
information about USB cable connection, because OTG state machine needs
that. As I wrote, current USB cable names are misleading. It would be
better to have "USB-VBUS" and "USB-ID".
