See the README file in the hotplug tarball:

"(3)  To collect ascii event logs for events that aren't handled
       by some /etc/hotplug/*.agent (optional):

	# touch /var/log/hotplug/events"

Yes, it's optional, but the intention here is probably to detect those 
events that aren't currently being handled by hotplug.  Note that it 
doesn't log *all* hotplug events.  On my box, it seems to be limited to 
vcs(4) devices.
