I guess it could be interpreted that way (I hope not!) I think it's
clear although maybe a special note could be added.
I'm not convinced the power isn't well, not so much miswired as
misleading. It's definitely possible to plug the microUSB cable I have
from a host into that port and I don't think that would be a good
thing to do. Chip U$1 (TPS2051 Mosfet) connects the USB VBus line to
the input power socket. I'm mostly sure that's out of spec.
Essentially it comes down to "Watch what you plug into".
