Hidden microsd port in internal card reader

Just took apart this internal card reader from eBuyer to straighten out a bent Compact Flash pin, and low and behold, there’s a micousb slot hiding on the board under the USB port! Why haven’t they included a slot in the front panel to access it?! It always baffles me when manufacturers go to the trouble and expense of adding functionality and then disable or hide it. They’ve not beat me though, I’ll cut a slot in the panel to access it.
