What is "false?" My mindset is if you're doing the best you can with the information you have, then what more can you do? Truthfully, I don't predicate any UR action based on a hope the user might actually respond, and I don't want to leave the map cluttered with URs: Solve what I can, reject what I can't, and move on. If it was really a problem, it'll show up again, hopefully with some text describing the problem.
Under the old UR system (think Cartouche') I used to have a template where I'd request additional information (RFI), but I recall getting only one response among hundreds of RFIs.
