  1. I wish to design a device that talks to a PC over one (1) USB cable but has
    2 (two) separately addressable data streams of two different types.

    Does the USB standard support this?

    Logically, you can accomplish the same thing by getting a gadget that takes
    one USB connect and makes it into 4 connections. Since this is routinely
    done, the answer is YES.
     
  3. It should work. A USB hub can multiplex a number of devices onto a
    single USB bus. Your device would look like a hub with two USB devices
    attached.
