I am pretty sure that would add unneeded latency to the drive having to check if the SATA or USB is connected, and anyways USB 3. MOST USB 3 devices pull out 5Gb/s tops and usually with operating system overhead are at around 4.5 (there are some high performance drives that do max out USB 3 bandwidth), SSDs are really pushing the limits of SATA III and the move to SATA express is coming soon because of this. I don't see the market for this being that big. I am pretty sure that Windows installed onto a USB dive wouldn't play too nice turning into an internal drive. I am no expert on that though
