Indeed.

In addition, you should be more careful about the distinction between 
"unbound" and "disconnected".  It's possible for the driver to be 
unbound from the device even while the device is still plugged in.  In 
this situation, submitting URBs will fail with an error even though the 
device state isn't USB_STATE_NOTATTACHED.
