Not really.  The sound devices will be there if you load the modules first
(or have them compiled in the kernel).  Autoloading the modules will even be
done by udev itself in a new enough kernel, new enough udev, in a system
with no traces of hotplug left (for PCI/USB/other hotplug-firendly buses).

As for raid, MAKEDEV md will create it in /dev/.static/dev if they are not
there yet. You can just:

mdadm --assemble /dev/.static/dev/md5 /dev/sd9 /dev/sd10

And you will also have a /dev/md5 right away.

That would be a good idea, I suppose.  We do need a nice interface to
interact with the udev config files for simple things like renaming devices
and making them static...
