...though the only use I can imagine is that some libudev listener has
registered the device internally and then it needs to unregister it on
REMOVE. There's no point in running any scan from within udev rules on
that event since the device is already gone.

So doing some action on REMOVE event is possible and allowed, but its
use in the future is quite negligible and less probable...
