Are you sure?  What about if you plug in an SDIO card, then unplug it,
then plug in an SD card?

Yup, I think you were only thinking about the embedded case where you
know that an SDIO card will be plugged into the slot.  In the case
where you have an exposed slot it is certainly possible to expect
someone might plug in an SD card or an SDIO card.  ...or even a combo
card!
