I just want to second all your points. USB is very convenient, but
Ethernet is much more robust. I also find that serial is very robust.

Ethernet is far more robust and works on every system availablewithout
having to create a driver. Also, USB plugs can come out tooeasily. Ethernet
connectors have a more reliable plug, and even if it does getunplugged
