I think the best you can do right now is to set "automatically connect
to this network" on A, but not on U. Then it will try A automatically,
and if it fails, you can activate U manually.

That gets pretty tricky. For instance, a machine configured like this gets taken home, and the user plugs into wired. A is tried automatically, and fails (no 802.1x at home.) Then they have to manually enable U? Not gonna fly with my users.
