Greg, any plans to distribute udev and hotplug within kernel tarballs
so that people do not need to track such changes continuously?

Nope. But if you use udev, you should read the announcements for new
releases, as I did say this was required for 2.6.12, and gave everyone a
number of weeks notice :)

Since udev is required for booting, it sounds like you're putting people in an upgrade-or-no-boot situation.

That's lame. The kernel should support udev's out in the field, on people's boxes (RHEL, SLES?, Fedora, ...).
