The problem is that it's impossibly impractical to give that connector
"reasonable care" in the field. Regardless of type, connectors always
seem to be just-barely-visible and just-barely-out-of-reach. The D-sub
requires good visibility (to tell which way the slider is slid) and
good tactile access to [un]couple. Since these conditions rarely obtain,
THE !#@$%&* CONNECTER DRIVES PEOPLE CRAZY.

Which is one of the reasons you see so many of them torn asunder, at
which point they become worse than useless. Except as mute testimony
to the limits of human patience.
