Well, i was thinking about "very cheap mass storage for the c64"; and I 
selected the tape port in particular so other devices at userport (speeddos 
cable!) and expansion port (ram expansion! mmc! etc.etc.) would not be bothered.

Furthermore the fact that USB hardware needs four lines only almost begged it 
to be plugged in to the tape port; if it had worked, the hardware costs would 
have been as cheap as just connecting four pins from the USB stick to four 
lines of the tape port. Would have. But now that there is the speed problem, 
there's no such thing as a free lunch eh...
