I'd like to open the DISK_IO protocol and leave it open for quite a
while (hours).  In the mean time the device may be removed.  I would
assume that I can continue to try using the protocol to read/write and
there would simply be a failure (as long as its detached - if
something else in its place may fail due to media-id difference, but
that is understood).  Once I close the protocol, then the item is
cleaned up.

Is the assumption good?
