And have ten+ keyboards in the rack? At home? It's a pain. And even with ten
keyboards it's a pain having to reboot a machine just because the keyboard
died or because the cabling needs to be re-arranged.

Again I've never heard of anyone running into any kind of problems due to
this. And someone else recently posted about not being able to find any
conclusive information on this info at all while googling. So really I don't
consider it bad practice at all, since I have never heard of a failure, nor
seen any concrete evidence why it would actually be bad.
