I've already got the trivial patch that upgrades Udev, but doesn't strip out Udev-config. It's been build-tested but not boot-tested currently. It may have an impact on the minimum host-kernel pre-req, but I don't have anything to test on to confirm/deny this. My proposal would be to just chuck it over the wall and see what breaks - this is trunk after all :-) I certainly don't think it needs its own branch.
I think stripping out Udev-Config is fairly safe too - the discrepancies I flagged may cause some breakage in some esoteric use cases/devices but I think by and large people will still be able to boot and use LFS-based systems. Any breakage can be easily rectified by including new rules in an LFS-format patch, which can then be submitted upstream for their consideration.
