Perhaps, in the interactive C-c C-e mode there could be:

 [C-e] Eval code blocks:  always | never | use-eval-header-setting

where 'use-eval-header-settings' is the default and uses whatever was set by the current org file and emacs session. Always and never would override that.

Consider the scenario where a number of people are working on a common overall "book" which is constructed from many org-files. The "hardcoded" setting of :eval no-export header in individual blocks would mean that I cannot interactively enable or disable the evaluation of the blocks.

Part of my confusion was that it took a little bit to figure this out (I ended up debugging the lisp code to get what I wanted). I think this could be improved in the doc, though I do admit, I'm not entirely clear on all the ways to control evaluation of code blocks during export. If I were, I'd propose something for the org manual.

I'm not sold to this idea. There are already many ways to control
evaluation of Babel code, i.e., :eval header arguments in its multiple
forms, `org-export-use-babel'.

Adding one more could also add confusion.
