Firewire is absolute king in the recording world though. I don't think the manufacturers have given this much thought to how big the recording market is.
With USB you have a maximum of 2 simultaneous tracks. With firewire, the only real limitation is the cpu power.

I realize that will change with USB 3.0, but for now firewire remains king of the hill.
