I'm not really sure what this buys you. If you could rip out the old code it would reduce complexity a bit --- but if you do that, you have *another* version of udev that won't work on older kernels. So you'd need to maintain the old and new code in parallel, and given the not-terribly-great complexity of the old code, is the result worth it?

Change must happen "sometime". Think of the future generations :)

Yeah, but this change doesn't let you simplify the userspace consumers of sysfs at all, at least not until they drop kernel <2.6.18 compatibility, which is hopefully not going to be for a while!
