It is directly on the motherboard. I would not personally worry about stressing the board.

I can't speak for all of them, but I wasn't happy with the look of the connections. Since I was in there anyway, I re-soldered them. Mine is a launch day phone and with how I treat it (I used to grab the cord to find the phone when my alarm is going off and it was charging), had I been plugging and unplugging in that port as it was...I would probably have a loose port. In my case, I would not be so fast to blame HTC. It's not the lightest phone, factor that in when you are yanking around on the cable.
