Auto approve option for Unapproved, Needed Updates rule for WSUS

I feel there should be an option in WSUS that allows you to create a rule that automatically approves unapproved, needed updates. As it stands, a lot of products can be installed on many machines on a network. Selecting all products and categories in WSUS consumes a LOT of disk space when automatic approval is enabled. By being able to create a rule that automatically approves unapproved, needed updates, we will be able to keep disk consumption to a minimum, ensure all Microsoft products on the network are patched appropriately, help prevent WSUS database problems when trying to perform cleanups due to clutter and keep IT administration down to a minimum which not only saves us time but also money.

I understand this functionality is available through third party scripting but this is something I really want to avoid if possible.
