Possible to limit duration for a device control exemption?

Is there a way to set a period or duration to have the exemption on a certain device?

For example, a user requests that her external USB device be exempted only for a 6-month duration. I have not seen how to do this within ePO under DLP device control exemptions. This would be good since ePO/DLP would be the putting this exemption in some sort of a schedule and then erase/remove it when the stop date comes in and not having the ePO admin take down notes and schedule to remove that exemption on the stop date.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to apply policy via duration or schedule.
