I'm unconvinced. The language in the spec refers to an "endpoint",
i.e. that means to me on the device side only: (section 5.8.3 of the
1.1 spec)

"A bulk transfer is complete when the *endpoint* (emphasis mine) does
one of the following:

- Has transferred exactly the amount of data expected
- Transfers a packet with a payload size less than wMaxPacketSize or
transfers a zero-length packet."

It's the same in both directions. Think about it logically. How else
would you ever signal to the device that a transfer is complete?
