I think it would be nice to have usbinput has a default hook in mkinitcpio.conf. Without this hook, when dumped into the busybox recovery shell usb keyboards won't work, making the shell worthless. Many users now have usb keyboards. <== There were a handful of users that had no idea how to get a usb keyboard to work, including myself.
This task depends upon

I think this would be an OK default. Modern machines don't even HAVE ps2 ports anymore...
