Revocation should be a cornerstone.

I would therefore suggest not to close this issue and discuss how revocation ties in with expiry or other means of undoing an exception.

In NL for example there is most likely to be a (local law) requirement to keep consent on record for multiple years. 

I am concerned that an indication that a granted exception at first visit turns into an out of band consent on next visits. 
Another concern is that granting an exception and undoing that are two sides of the same coin. The undoing part could be addressed with (automatic) expiry, revocation, clearing the browser state etc. I do not have a complete picture of all the options to reset a UGA.

Without turning this into a compliance discussion, the buildingblock to deal with revocation should be looked at more in detail.
