This is correct. udev does not require systemd in order to run; the only
thing it needs is the systemd build environment since there is common
source code.

The primary reason we have sys-fs/udev in the tree these days is so
people can have upstream udev without installing systemd.

In theory, we could lastrites sys-fs/udev and make sys-apps/systemd the default
udev provider, but I'm sure that change would be even more controversial
than what we are discussing. ;-)
