It appears to me "systemd-mount" is the functionality you want to use
for this. It will automatically derive a usable name from the device
metadata and install an automount instance for it, so that there's the
best chance for the device's file system to always stay in a clean state.

You can invoke systemd-mount directly from the udev rule.
