I would say that the hub and the USB host controller are the two hardware devices that would be driven to power levels that they were not necessarily specified. Since they were the ones who were suffering the brunt of this issue in older kernels.
Although I doubt running the hub beyond power spec is a serious problem, running the usb host controller hardware out of spec could cause no end of problems that may be difficult to diagnose if it is drawing too much power.
