This reply does not seem to have made it to bug-hurd. Maybe not so
usable to get support for USB in Hurd, but anyway.

GRUB USB stack isn't meant for a complete OS. It works in polling mode
which has only minimal impact in bootloader but will stall the CPU in a
real kernel.
Licensing can be another problem: I don't know if Hurd has already made
it to GPLv3+. If the subsystem is useful technically we can look into it
but a priori it's not a good place to copy from
