Lennart Poettering has declared that the time is close to removing the ability to run udev without systemd.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hopefully a clean udev fork will survive at least for a while.

I saw a couple of distros had made a "systemd shim" to allow the timedate daemon to work without the rest of systemd - didn't manage to make it work on tc yet though...

That shim is not a sustainable path. The systemd-udev will keep requiring more and more of systemd as time passes.

Slackware has developed eudev - so alternatives are out there.
