Yes, i already built one of those adapters, which was three-headed 
because it had a separate connector for external power.
With the extra usb port the mini port would remain unused and allow for 
either charging in auto-detected fast charge mode or an additional host, 
I thought it would be more elegant if the neo itself would distribute 
power from some extrernal supply to itself and the usb device; 
additionally i usually dont't carry that adapter around, whereas the usb 
jack would be built-in (now again, is this a standard usb host the bt 
module is connected to?)
I believe pulster and trisoft carry spare displays here in germany, i'll 
look into getting one from them.
