Another option may be to remove the ENV{ACL_MANAGE}!="*?" condition from
the rule that puts all the COLOR_MEASUREMENT_DEVICE devices in the colord
group ? Would that be a better fallback ?

There are currently two rules which can be discussed:

# Let udev-acl manage these devices, if it's available

This one will do nothing on recent systems.

# Otherwise, restrict access to members of the colord group,
# which the user may have to add to the system and add themselves to.
MODE="660", GROUP="colord"

ACL_MANAGE is no longer used in recent systemd/udev and it is indeed
better to no longer rely on it and instead only set
COLOR_MEASUREMENT_DEVICE. The latter is handled by udev/systemd
