Disconnecting a USB device shouldn't cause wake from sleep

I find this scenario annoying:
  1. Connect an iPod to a Mac. Sync.
  2. Hit the Eject icon for the iPod in iTunes.
  3. Leave the iPod physically connected to the Mac—it needs a charge.
  4. Put the Mac to sleep. Wait.
  5. Disconnect the iPod.
What happens next? The Mac wakes from sleep. Because I disconnected an ejected iPod. I cannot think of a use case for that behaviour.
