Can you please tell me where?

As I see it in udev only tags (=properties) are set to create groups
of devices.
Now this is a bit double (=confusing) since by udev also the name seat
for these groups is used, while a group of devices is not neccesarly a
new seat. It can be also a docking station, or maybe has no special
function if the user wants that.
