FireWire (410) hot-swapping hot-plugging issues and risks and possible workarounds

I bought a FireWire 410 by M-Audio and read all the warnings about not hot-plugging the device...
It sucks to have to turn the computer down every time, so I wondering if it would be possible to circumvent the problem or diminish the risks by buying a FireWire hub and connecting all the hard drives and the audio interface to the computer through the hub...
also if I use the enclosed wall-mart adapter for the audio interface, can I then hot-plug (since, I am assuming, the power to the interface will come from the adapter?

no way around it.
