Ian, 

a smart way would be to say "until next time the user expresses a 
different opinion". This way a new signal allows to sustain a state 
or change it for subsequent requests, all prefs only stored client 
side. So the permission management would be client side and the 
client would have the responsibility to send the right headers after 
the decision is made until the user changes his mind. 

Would that be an option?
