Just a random pick, no special meaning here.
On newer distros, udev will also pick 2s for the events_dfl_poll_msecs
parameter, so I just followed that :-)
Do you see any problem with this setting?

The block device sr0 is created by this driver in this probe function,
so the user should not be able to set the poll interval before probe,
