Yeah, it means "userspace event", sorry we could not not come up with a better name.
But it does describe what is happening, userspace is being notified that
something happened in the kernel.
And it's better than "hotplug" which is overloaded way too much these
days (hotplug memory, hotplug cpu, hotplug usb devices, etc.) and we export
more information through the uevent interface than just "hotplug" add
and remove events these days.
