Surprised? Trust me, not as much as I was when I got this information. Google is currently working on a project that will allow fastboot commands to be run over WiFi. This project, when launched will make it very easy to run commands everywhere and anywhere on a PC without having to attach USB cables.
An example of what the commands will look like:
fastboot -s tcp:<hostname>[:port] <command>
