here it is:
This is helpful.  Your MIDI descriptors are virtually identical to the ones in 
appendix B of the spec.  And when you plug this in and start a MIDI program, 
you see bulk transfers happening?
  With MidiOx open, the host is issuing INs once every ~9uS

  db 001h ;bcdMSC
  db 63 ; Size-LSB
  db 0 ; Size - MSB
How did you get 63 for the size?  Shouldn't it be 7+6+6+8+8 = 35?
  I was having problems early on getting XP to recognize the MIDI portion of 
the device so I made our MIDI descriptors violate just like the 
example.  Turns out the issue was related to not handling audio feature unit 
requets correctly.  I never changed them back.  I just changedit back and Vista 
and  XP seem to be fine with it.
  IBy the way, I'm convinced the USB MIDI spec has a mistake in this descriptor 
in the sample.  They show 0x0041 for the size in section B.4.2, but based on 
the description in, it should be 7+6+6+9+9 = 0x0025.  To get 0x0041, 
you have to include the endpoint descriptors, and that doesn't meet  
However, apparently no one checks this.

Aparently not!

The spec shows these as being 9 bytes long, with a string descriptor ordinal at 
the end.  If this works for you in XP, then I guess usbaudio.sys must not care.
