Because why would you run a long-obsolete kernel, and yet require a brand-new version of udev?
Because new versions of udev contain new libudev APIs, and applications can depend on those. Were it not for eudev, we'd be required to upgrade the kernel in order to run such applications. This sort of tight coupling is not good. (Well, OK, some people seem to think that the tighter the coupling, the better, but I very much hold with the traditional viewpoint that loose coupling is to be preferred.)
