Regarding "js*" vs. "js", I don't know.  I'd guess it depends on how udev treats
the '*' - if it's a "1 or more characters" it won't match "js", it's a "zero or
more characters" it will.

As for your second comment, I'm again torn between these two arguments:

1) Let's put every conceivable device in our rules file, with sane names and
ownership.  Rationale: LFS creates the /dev directory and handles its population
via udev, therefore it should ensure devices get created sensibly inside it.
2) Let's put whatever devices don't require packages outside of LFS in /dev. 
Rationale: You can't use the device without going BLFS, therefore LFS shouldn't
care how that device gets created.

Maybe this needs to go to lfs-dev at this point?
