For the example you gave, probably yes, it is.

However, when the device is coming up for the first time, in such reset scenario, device is not even poking at the host yet.
It is still under reset.
10msec may not be enough.
And infinite wait is yet another extreme where system is optimistic that device _will_ finish the reset.
