 USB-IF or vendors. Neither Be Inc at his time neither us can influence USB
 standards specification. We made some effort to keep these definitions
 names from being as crypted as seen on other platforms, witch is great,
 but prefixing with B_ wont add any value but could make someone think it's
 specific to BeOS/Haiku.

 If the headers are to be public and the defined interface doesn't belong
 to some standard (e.g. POSIX) there is really nothing to discuss. They
 have to be prefixed "B_". Which doesn't have anything to do with whether
 Be, Inc. influences standards, just with what namespace they chose for
 BeOS's public API. The simple reason for using this prefix is to avoid
 clashes with third party software.
