By adding these two files a notification icon and device name will be shown on the primary display.

Huh? For which desktop is this needed? Modern desktops use hal and dbus notification and the future is DeviceKit. Please consider using a desktop service/daemon which uses http://hal.freedesktop.org/docs/DeviceKit/

These files are not going be part of the standard udev package. If really needed, they can be provided by the package, which needs them itself.
