Why don't let the automounter (or udev rules in the event you don't have
any DE installed)) automatically puts the unknown USB devices under "/
media" or inside your own defined "/flash" mount point?

Static mount points (those defined in "/etc/fstab") can be good for
devices you know beforehand but not for those you know nothing about
(unknown UUID, unknown LABEL...) because you cannot "identify" them.
