You imply that there's a difference between a 'device' and a 'host' in
1394 communications, but AFAIK such a distinction doesn't exist.
That's about the biggest conceptual difference there is between
Firewire and it's strongest contestant: USB 2.0 is strictly

reason it exists is to boost sales of prospective hosts, i.e.: PCs.
