As mentioned earlier, CHANGE events do not carry any
information about _what_ has changed.
The udev rules / programs are expected to check for
this themselves. So from that point of view yes, you
cannot simply wait for 'the' CHANGE event as you
might get more than one.

I guess most of this discussion could be solved if
the CHANGE events would be modify to attach some
enviroment variables indicating the nature of the change.

EG adding 'DM_STATE=LIVE' or whatever is appropriate
