As a rule of thumb, we generally prefer taking the fixes used in
unstable where they're applicable, as they've (in theory) been better

Please could you expand a little on why you feel adding the dependency
would be a better solution than making the use of udev optional via the
LSB headers as (as you noted) was done for wheezy?
