Editing /etc/fstab by user utility using a root service sounds to me:

- Wrong, because udisks2 already supports setting of mount options as 
user without writing to /etc/fstab.

- Non-flexible, becaue /etc/fstab does not support setting e. g. mount 
options for all media with particular FS type.

- And insufficient, because /etc/fstab cannot reflect users' locale or 
time zone, which is needed for friendly manipulation with vfat.

- And ugly, because different users may have different opinion, and 
there is no way to remove them without having the device at hands.
