Irrespective of where this originated from, I think this is a good
idea.  For probably 90% of devices there won't be any difference.
Hopefully people will be willing to compromise on the differences.  My
personal thought is that Alexander should be leading this endeavor
since he seems to have the best grasp on kernel/udev around here (not
to knock anyone else).
