Can you disable the export functions from triggering the need to re-save the file?

Setup:

    If I open any of my saved Illustrator files and simply 'export for web' and make no other changes, Illustrator automatically signifies that there is a change to the file (example.ai*) requiring me to now go through the save dialogue box to exit the file. 

    This can be incredibly annoying since my job requires me to open many old files and re-export for the web while making no new changes to the file. To me, it would seem that an export of a file, with zero changes to the file, shouldn't trigger the * requiring a save action. The weird thing about it as well is that I can hit cmd+z and the * will go away letting me close the file without saving.

    I hope this makes sense.

 

Question:

    Can you disable the export functions from triggering the need to re-save the file?

what if you record an action to batch export your files? if you still get the save window you can also incorporate the undo command.
