Are you kidding? Even more crap based on crap which was based on crap...

Backward compatibility means you have to support 2.0 and 3.0 and 3.1 and 3.2... Why do you think it could be easier to do than USB 3 without the additional USB4 stuff?

Well, first you have to build USB 3, then try to figure out what Thunderbolt contributes, and make that work.

If you want to know abut USB 4, see: https://gizmodo.com/usb4-is-going-to-revolutionize-the-usb-standard-all-ove-1833059622
