usbip is a mechanism to remotely access usb devices ofter the ip protocol and make these devices locally available.
This can be useful for a central dongle server, this is not about working around the limitations of dongles, because each dongle can accessed only by one remote machine at any point in time. But usbip allows to move the access to the usb devices around without moving them physically.
From my point of view only the usbip client is needed for windows/wine , because the usbip server can run on some linux / raspi box .
Moreover, certain parts (like driver signing with some microsoft certificate) is not needed, because when using wine we do not use the thrust chain of micosoft.
Since usbip is available under the GPL license through the linux kernel, the question is whether the functionality of the usbip client could be privided by wine in one way or another.
