But that's a problem the system has to deal with anyway, the user can yank out the cable at any time.
The system more options to deal with the user yanking out the cable, because the user expects yanking the cable to interrupt use of the device, and the user can arrange not to yank the cable if it is a problem. In contrast, suspend happens all by itself at largely arbitrary times, so the user won't expect interruption and can't practically avoid it.
