One thing I would worry about plugging/un-plugging it all the time is that you may end up damaging your DisplayPort plug/socket. DP and hdmi connectors don't like a lot of plugging in/out cycles imho.
This for sure.
I think this kind of device relies on a very good connection and repeatedly unplugging and plugging over time is definitely going to risk that. Having occasional disconnect problems with a USB drive for example is inconvenient but with the Rift it's a cause for RMA!
