I've replied with such to _every_ request/question about udev here.  I'm
working on writing up something more complete to send, but 24 hour days
plus a variety of Life things to deal with have kept me from having the
time to actually get it done.  Things should settle down for me later
this week and I'll manage to get it written up.  The short and simple
version is that by not having any policy dictated, the system becomes
overly complicated and difficult to deal with.
