Sure.  A few questions, though:

These come from alsa-utils, obviously.  But alsa.rpm requires
alsa-utils, so this should be OK.

Do you mean I copy systemd's rules file to alsa.rpm...?

We need a rules file for non-systemd (i.e. without systemd.rpm), so
someone still needs to provide a udev stuff for sound, I suppose?

OK, this is easy.
