I am not familiar with how to interface ui with customize so I don't
know whether its possible or not, but there are many instances in
emacs where this is done as standard practice. For example marking
certain file local variables as safe, or turning on some special
behaviour when invoked for the first time (e.g. side scrolling).
However I do recall all of these prompts the user whether they want to
keep the settings temporary or make it permanent. So I would say its a
Request for Feature Enhancement / Bug rather than a mere documentation
