Yes, USB can have a different class for each interface, with multiple
interfaces within a given configuration - so you can have an device with
multiple configurations, one configuration offering USB storage, one
offering USB networking, one offering USB serial, and one offering all
of the above, each on different endpoints.

However, I don't know how well certain program launchers masquerading as
operating systems would handle such devices, and I think that's why most
devices restrict themselves to only one interface per configuration.
