Would that really matter? I was describing how udev fit into the hotplug picture, not trying to advocate for it one way or another.

If you were to write "I released a new project 6 days ago and now, in my own opinion, the entire world of kernel hotplug has been turned on its head" you'd get a rather different article. The reader deserves to know the relationship between the author and the subject matter.
An LWN article about hotplug-ng would normally highlight the relative youth of the project (not even a week) and the functionality of the previous hotplug system which you have chosen to remove; in other words, giving the reader the complete picture of how hotplug-ng will affect his use of Linux. That's why we pay for LWN, after all.
