I know it looks like a bit of a hack, but what about if the 
'install-docs' target just copied the files to /usr/share/doc/udev-*/? 
If we put the 'make install-docs' command after the instructions to 
install 'Writing Udev Rules', which gets explicitly installed into 
/usr/share/doc/udev-&udev-version; then we should be OK, no? (the only 
issue here is if folks upgrade Udev over the top of an existing 
installation, then there may well be both /usr/share/doc/udev-101 and 
/usr/share/doc/udev-102 directories, for example.
