The problem with micro/mini USB connectors is that they tend to become loose sooner or later, so it’d a bit risky to use that as the only power connector (as secondary it’d make more sense). Several USB cables are also thin with non-neglible voltage drop over tha cable with high load – not really an issue when charging a battery or even for 3.3V OSSC logic (driven by LDO with ~0.4V dropout), but DDC5V would get affected and might cause issues in some rare cases.
