Also note that at that point we intend to move udev onto kdbus as
transport, and get rid of the userspace-to-userspace netlink-based
tranport udev used so far. Unless the systemd-haters prepare another
kdbus userspace until then this will effectively also mean that we will
not support non-systemd systems with udev anymore starting at that
point. Gentoo folks, this is your wakeup call.

Yes, the device node management being handled in userpace by udev and then udev merging into systemd has a lot to do with allowing this kind of leverage - the old devfsd was part of the Linux kernel.
