Feature Suggestion: usb and other devices controlling of connections admin permissions

There should be a way to at least hide (as in VMware player) or preferably disable the usb connections or restrict for non admin users, the connecting and disconnecting of specific usb and other devices shared with the host so kids/non admin users can't randomly connect and disconnect devices. One example is the mouse/keyboard -if disconnected instability in host also. Or if loading a VDI for virtualbox off the external usb hard drive you don't want this accidentally disconnected from the host, as you may have data loss and crash VM.

I am new to using virtual box and have yet to use the usb filters -not sure how this works.
