So far, I've only been offered anecdotical evidence. I would be very 
happy with any of the following:
* some mainstream distro's offering it as an install/upgrade option
* the maintainer stating it should be the preferred default for machines 
to handle /dev (instead of the non-ambiguous warnings)
* the kernel folks exhibiting so much trust in it that they make it a 
requirement (not gonna happen until 2.8 at the earliest)

LFS has never been bleeding edge; it just used the latest stable release 
of a package if available. I don't see any reason to change that now, 
especially not to serve desktop use. That would be narrowing of our 
focus and target/intended audience. We're producing a book, not a distro.
