feature request Intel edison mini-breakout: USB on pin header section

Dear list,

One of the nice things about the intel Edison is that it can operate as a USB host for peripherals. Another nice thing is the small form factor.

In my particular design (everything has to fit on a relatively small musical instrument (trumpet)) it would be nice if I could use the USB host interface from the pins and not from the micro USB connector. It seems there are still a few PINs that are not used on the board.

The micro USB host is great for prototyping purposes but for a permanent design it would be nice to have this extra feature...

Are there more people who would support this?

Best, Hans.
