Not based on anything but my opinion

I can't see this happening!

It'll be a neat trick if Apple completely prevents it. The camera kit opens up file storage on an SD card or your camera when plugged in via cable. So you know iPad will allow moving photos and video on and off either. I'll bet they'll let you save iWork documents to SD or USB thumbdrives, mainly to make it easy to transfer them to a PC you can print them from.

I KNOW the iPad doesn't have more than a single proprietary dock port because Steve J is anal about the easthetics, and he can force 3rd party manufacturers to pay him a license fee for anything they want to connect there.

The USB port on the TV was only meant for diagnostics and servicing, but TV Flash opened that up for USB storage, so I think it's probably only a software limitation. You should be able to hack your way in.
