Well, than it couldn't be editable by a config file, correct?. At least, 
the "defaults" for the basic devices must to be resonable, and we all make 
ours "udev-configs packages" to create a secure and organized /dev because 
these defaults are somewhat insecure or/and ugly. 

I always believe that /lib and /usr/lib are place to store modules, libraries, 
binary data and support programs, not plain configurarion texts. Be it for 
create defaults or not.

It's just my opinion.
