Let me try it again

The COM Module (Fire) is what goes into the Tobi/Summit expansion board.

They are not telling you that you can't connect something to the expansion board when its powered.

For the expansion board you can hot plug peripherals that are designed to hotpluggable.

USB is designed to be hotpluggable.

In fact its power pins will connect before the IO pins. So you're perfectly safe plugging that into the Fire while everything is running.

The COM Module is what goes into the Fire.

All they are doing is telling you not connect anything to it while its powered up.

For the Fire/Tobi(or any other baseboard) you can hot plug peripherals that are designed to hotpluggable.

USB is designed to be hotpluggable.

Wouldnt adding a USB hub and USB devices be considered a peripheral as
well? It would to me but I could be grossly wrong. I know I try and
make sure everything is plugged up before I power on but sometime I
need to add something that wasnt and have had no issues just plugging
it in as of yet. YMMV
