When the UA UI is used, the user at least knows that they added the exception, and can have a record of this.  This may be an important fact if their expressed privacy preference is not respected and it causes them some harm.  Under your proposal an evil website could just claim that the user had agreed to the exception and the user would be in a much weaker position to dispute the matter.

cheers
