I cannot say much myself about the complexity of the reference implementation, 
however the concept itself is imho pretty straightforward and (in particular) 
not intrusive.

The main problem that I see with REQUIRED_USE is that it generates 
restrictions that cannot be resolved automatically. Not sure how anything like 
that can happen here, where we do not offer any choices but deliberately only 
limit them.
