I think I've had mine set both ways in the past and never noticed any
difference as far as linux and hal were concerned.  The test for
whether the device needs to be ejected seems pretty simple:

# from /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-usb-music-players.fdi:

    <match key="info.category" string="storage">
      <!-- Apple iPod - TODO: use USB ids to determine exact output formats  -->
      <match key="storage.vendor" contains="Apple">
        <match key="storage.model" contains="iPod">
          <addset key="portable_audio_player.access_method.protocols" type="strlist">storage</addset>
          <addset key="portable_audio_player.access_method.protocols" type="strlist">ipod</addset>
          <addset key="portable_audio_player.output_formats" type="strlist">audio/aac</addset>
          <merge key="storage.requires_eject" type="bool">true</merge>

God loves stupid people. That's why he made so many.
